The main elements of local identity considered in the article are: significant places (including the symbolic center); understanding of the local geography (medium- and large-scale); symbolic values of local identity; myths samostoyaniya / pride of themselves; rituals of reproduction of identity; pantheon of heroes – real and mythical; ideas of the structure of the community: the core («elite»), borders, constituents (strata segments).
