The article describes the historical and socio-cultural specificity of formation of the center of the city, which largely determines its image. The attention is paid to varying space locations of the center in the architectural-planning variants, the following reasons are revealed: the influence of ideal concepts of “a new city”, the dependence of architectural projects on new styles of “socialistic cities”, the inconsistency between the plans of city development and technical and economical opportunities, the dominance of defense industry factories and affordable housing in city-planning strategy. The regularity of transformation of the city architectural image from the “sample” of a new culture (in plans) to provincial, not having so far a unified city center (in reality).

Keywords: city architectural image, center of the city, ideal city, “new” city, sample of culture, utopian views, ideological and aesthetic center
