The territory, formerly known as Ivanovskaya Gorka looks like a complex urban system; The territory is divided into many different semantic parts, filled with various religious centres, art clusters and places of attraction of youth. Here was the busiest shopping district of Khitrovka - the center of attraction of wealthy merchants who were eager to sell their goods. Such a historical diversity of users of our territory entails the separation of different urban texts. Such texts - behind the layer - create an overall picture of the urban space, they do not disappear, but accumulate from generation to generation. The modern city is a whole set of such texts, the authors of which are the residents themselves, living different time periods and times. All layers of the city system function simultaneously, they interact with each other, which leads to the formation of new types of relationships between citizens. The study of a particular urban area through the way of life of residents and representatives of urban communities can "reveal" those urban texts that are inaccessible to ordinary citizens. In our work, we tried to open the texts of the Kitay-gorod district using various qualitative research methods. The result of our work is a new touristic guide to Kitay-gorod.
