The Groznaya fortress, having become a city, took over all the functions of a city, becoming the center of progress – breakthrough ideas, innovations, and culture. The city, being a complex organism, played a special role in the material and spiritual culture of society, an artificial habitat was created here, which portrayed a slice of the era. The urban space of Grozny was distinguished by its polyethnicity, polyconfessionalism, active interaction and interrelation of various cultural traditions. Capitalist development and urbanization have entailed the modernization of social and cultural environment. Along with its administrative status, a demographic indicator was no less important, denoting the concept of “city”, its development and place in the social structure of society.
