Marek Obrębalski


The article presents the population problem of urba n functional area around selected medium&sized cities in Poland and the Czec h Republic. Research work refers to six cities (on the Polish side & Jelenia Góra, Legnica and Wałbrzych – located in Lower Silesia region; on the Czech side & Hradec Králové, Liberec and Ústí nad Labem). These core cities with suburban areas co&create the functional urban areas with varied demographic structure and deve&lopment dynamics. In the analysed period, the population growth was observed only in Liberec. The largest total population among stud ied areas refers also to Liberec functional urban area. The population in suburban areas of the examined Polish and Czech cities is relatively younger than in the core cities. Functio nal approach for development of urban areas founding depart from perception of demographic prob lem and challenges only by prism of administrative borders becomes more important.
