This study discusses a currently central scientific issue related to the development of monospecialized cities, and the importance and peculiarities of the geographical approach (and the geographical mode of thinking) in dealing with it. This approach is useful for determining the main formation and development tendencies of monocities, the degree of their involvement in a region’s territorial structure, etc. The analysis was carried out by using the monocities of the Baikal region as an example.

Keywords: monospecialized settlements, socioeconomic depression, geographical approach, strategic and territorial planning, spatial development, problem-stricken territories.
