The article discusses the historical and sociological aspects of the transformation of the image of Siberia in the public consciousness of Russians in the XIX - XXI centuries. Based on the analysis of the texts of historians and philosophers of the past, as well as modern researchers, the reasons for the ambivalent perception of the region are shown. It is concluded that the integration of Siberia into the sociocultural space of Russia is the result of the latter’s self-colonization. Modern exotisation of Siberia allows us to conclude that this process has not yet been fully completed.
