Description In modern prose the city takes an important role, not only in the formation of the mental worldview, mental state of man and seeing himself in the city as part of society, but also personal and national identification. In article we analyze the novel by Ukrainian writer V. Amelina "Home for Dom" and Czech author A. Cima "I wake up on Shibuya", which became an example of understanding the world of the youngest generation. We focused on the topos of the city and its influences on the formation of national and individual identity of the characters. In conclusion, we can again state that the search for oneself through other worlds, other cities, other people. This is probably the only thing that can be considered common in the both literatures of today, because it’s due to generational proximity, everything else is much different, and the reason for the differences is also hidden in the past, namely in the history and traditions of each nation.
