Abstract. The article deals with the spatial boundary — the boundary between the «our» and «outlying» world in folk ideas; reveals the concept of fencing — to surround space both real and symbolic; it is noted that the creation of a magic circle (fencing with bypass, fumigation, cincture, etc.) is a form of creating obstacles between the supervising object and the bearer of danger.

 Keywords: boundary, space, fence, enclose, doorstep, danger, symbol.
