The presented article is an attempt at reconstructing models of the identity of places present in biographical novels and stories by two celebrated authors and leaders of public opinion. The authoress seeks an answer to the question: which parts of the Tri-City are subjected to the most intense symbolisation in the oeuvre of the two men of letters? Do their works contain recurring combinations of values associated with concrete places in the space of Gdansk? How is the identity of people perceived within the context of the cultural identity of the place? Pawel Huelle creates a selective and vivid portrait of Gdansk, which appears to be one of his oeuvre's 'chief protagonists'. Even more extensive descriptions of cities and the author's experiences are to be found in novels by Stefan Chwin, who pays great attention to his closest surrounding. Both authors symbolically designate Gdansk by pursuing an archaeology of its residents' social memory and the micro-politics of local identity, enjoyed by numerous recipients.
