Abstract

The article deals with dichotomic character of contemporary regional development in transitional economies. It is shown the main problem of spatial development in transitional economies consists in sharp discordance between inadequately distributed and distorted system macrostructures inherited from socialist period and vogue neo-endogenous paradigm of regional development that is currently widely applied in both developed and transitional countries. The roots of this unfavourable state can be traced back to the history and hence the evolution of regional developmental conceptions that formed wider context of contemporary spatial developments in transitional economies will be discussed too. The case study that focuses on the Czech Republic brings ample evidence about above mentioned tensions.
