This research examines the Nizhny Novgorod text, its semantic features and ways of structuring them. The integration of cognitive and semiotic approaches aids in identifing semantic features in mental structures, that is, it allows us to study the perception of urban space. In the course of the study, I collected two corpora. The first corpus contains fragments with the toponym Nizhny Novgorod in the NСRL, the second corpus is made of literary works about Nizhny Novgorod of the XIX-XXI century. The material was analysed using the AntConc corpora manager. The means that constitute the semantic features of the Nizhny Novgorod text were identified with semic analysis by V.G. GAK. In comparison with the provincial texts of Russian linguoculture, the unique Nizhny Novgorod mythopoetics was proved.
