In last 20 years the Czech Republic went through significant economic, social and cultural changes that were reflected also in the spatial organization of the society. The most distinct manifestation was experienced in daily urban systems. The project is based on geographical and partly sociological approaches used in the time geography. The main objective of the project is to delimit daily urban systems on the basis of the intensity of retail services commuting and to carry out the structuration and internal differentiation of these systems coming out from time geographical approaches.
