    We study the universal characteristics of the shape of a polymer chain in an environment
    with correlated structural obstacles, applying the field-theoretical renormalization
    group approach. Our results qualitatively indicate an increase of the
    asymmetry of the polymer shape in crowded environment comparing with the pure
    solution case.
