The article discusses the process of transformation of ethno-confessional identities in the modern world on the example of a particular multicultural region.The problem of intercultural communication in such areas is very acute, so the study of inter-ethnic interfaith communication is a priority for researchers of various humanitarian fields, which explains the relevance of the scientific problem.It arises the question of finding more wide forms of self-identification. But on this way we find great difficulties arise due to the steady patterns of the traditional worldview. Special attention is paid to the gradual change in the ratio of regional, national and civil values and corresponding self-identification at all levels. Changes in society create an innovative understanding of identity. The emergence of new transcultural formations actualizes the searching of patterns and scenarios of coexistence in the common cultural field of various traditions and mentalities, developed and tested in the course of historical development.All this determines the need to identify new principles of building identity, based both on history, religion, mentality and on general citizenship.
