Аbstract: The review of poetry and fiction of the 19-th – 20-th centuries made it possible to point out main typological models of literary journeys to the Caucasus and define specification to each of them: “excursion”, “pilgrimage”, “escape”. The Caucasus is the main romantic topos of Russian literature, a place of metaphysical registration of poets. It determines the necessity of returning there, self-substitution of the author or a character of a classical Caucasian plot, a nostalgic reader`s journey to “the country of memories”.

Keywords: the Caucasus, romantic topos of Russian literature, literature-centered consciousness, typological models of literary journeys, author`s and character`s self- realisation in a role, metaphysical continuum.
