Based on cultural centrism, we can talk that culture of the quality of life has its own complex structure and modern societies have distinct cultural features that last for a long time having a significant impact on the quality of life.

Of particular importance is the formation of cultural values of people, freedom of expression, as well as the realization of creative potential.
