The differences in the socio-cultural development of large and small cities, which are reflected in the activity of mass consciousness, are emphasized. The relevance of the choice of the operator of the features of the place of residence and activity is shown, when the decisive factor is the scale of populated places, their correlation in the open space and the characteristic features generated by these circumstances. The increasing complexity of the epidemiological situation, the expansion of the digital economy, and the improvement of the road transport infrastructure put on the agenda the tasks of more fully involving small cities in the active life of the region and the country. It is noted that small towns and historical settlements receive additional opportunities to realize their potential. Legally, the municipal authorities have the necessary rights, but their economic and socio-cultural situation does not allow them to be implemented to the necessary extent. A typological comparison of the socio-cultural characteristics of a large and small city is proposed. The role of small historical settlements in the development of the Tver region is considered.
