In the last two decades, the term "creative economy" has become one of the most current topics and has been popularized around the world. Many scholars have tried to find theoretical determination of the creative industries and their position in the culture industry development. However, there is a recognized research gap in studying creative economy within the context of its generally accepted definition. Furthermore, very little research is available on the role of creative clusters in Russia. The phenomenon of creative quarters is now widespread and over the past 10 years the creative clusters began to spread over the Russian Federation. The present study will examine the creative clusters which are playing an increasingly important and decisive role in the process of urban regeneration of the particular regions in which they are concentrated. The present paper describes the rapid rise of the world’s most successful creative clusters, as well as in large regions of the Russian Federation. In particular, the potential problems in creative clusters management applicable to Russian and world practice, are identified. The empirical approach consists of case study of creative clusters in Russia, including systematic literature review and content analysis. The preliminary results imply that the public authorities should apply the appropriate strategies to interact with representatives of creative industries and promote innovations and creativity in the society. The implications for future research and its relevance to local governments are discussed.
