OUŘEDNÍČEK, M., KLSÁK, A., ŠPAČKOVÁ, P. (2019): In between city and village: the development of spatial patterns of Czech suburbanisation 1997-2016. Demografie, 61, č. 4, s. 299-308.
The assessment of the scope of suburbanisation within the hinterlands of Czech cities is one of the core issues of both pure and applied research of settlement geography and related disciplines. The main objective of this article is to furnish a coherent methodology for the delimitation of suburban municipalities in Czechia, to describe and explain the scope and spatial distribution and to compare the development of residential suburbanisation during two distinct periods: 1997–2008 and 2009–2016. The article uses the delimitation of zones of residential suburbanisation (Ouředníček–Špačková–Novák, 2013; Ouředníček– Špačková–Klsák, 2018), as an analytical tool for the evaluation of positional aspects of municipalities within the Czech settlement system.
