Description The city is an important aspect when studying any kind of art, including literature. The city is different in the literatures of different peoples and eras, it is constantly changing like any other living organism. The city in literature is most often represented in two ways: “physical” city (buildings, streets, cultural monuments, climate, transport, etc.) and “psychological” city (atmosphere, the influence of the city on heroes, the experience of heroes as a way of describing the city and etc.). This article examines the depiction of Novosibirsk in modern Russian literature from its “physical” and “psychological” points of view. For different writers, different aspects have the key significance when describing its urban scenery. Some of the description items are the same, but the authors see them in a different way. On the contrary, some of the details in the writers’ work coincide. Most often this applies to the “physical” city, for example, to the description of some streets, climate, and movement in the city.
