The integrity of space and time as a chronotope still needs to be researched both from
the macro- and microchronotope point of view. The research of spatiotemporal representations
of migrants from Russian cities includes three main aspects of migration to a metropolis:
experience of living in the conditions of a city with a population of 100-250 thousand people,
experience of living in the conditions of a metropolis, and migrant’s chronotope which
synthesizes both in itself. It was established that the specifics of migrant’s chronotope as a
special kind of microchronotope includes perception of time; a positive attitude towards both
past and future time; perceiving new living environment; the attitude towards experience of
belonging to the city.
