  • We analyze current methods of empirical measuring of cultural capital. We present its interpretation made by its founder as well as scientists who researched the notion in question in detail; advantages and disadvantages of various approaches to its interpretation are revealed. We also present our own vision of the measures used to assess cultural capital. By comparing different ideas of the essence and components of cultural capital, we try to distinguish the indicators for its assessment. Finally, we introduce certain aspects to pay attention when considering such a complex concept as cultural capital.
