Abstract

The introduction raises the problem of relationships between culture and space, here we prove the usage of semiotic concept of the culture as a basic concept of the research. That part of semiosphere, were the characters are the geographical locations and their respective names as well as names of water objects, is denoted as the goal of the study. The author's definitions of the terms “culture”, “geo-cultural space” and “cultural landscape” are introduced.
