Summary/Abstract: In the present work the spatial organization, lifestyle of citizens, the types and images of the county towns in the context of the Russian imperial culture are examined. These days, the interest to the towns of this type, the provincial culture as a whole has increased. Imperial culture intensified contradictions between center and the provinces. Towns of Mordovia had existed in different sub-civilizations but the meaningful “code”, established at their base, predetermined immutable features of the urban fabric and way of life of citizens for a few centuries. These towns, created by the state, were not to promote industry, trade or culture. They were a part of the administrative network and performed control functions, broadcast power in the province.
