This chapter contains the key results of the research.

The main result of the work can be summarized as follows:

The cultural landscape as a phenomenon of culture which is fixed in geographical space with the help of semiotic mechanisms—it is a special area of life of culture, having some certain functional and ontological self-sufficiency. Interpreting of the cultural landscape as a metaphor, a sign system and a text, undertaken in this paper, represents the author’s construct assisting to adequately show varied manifestations of the ontological and phenomenological essence of the cultural landscape and its corresponding culture.
