Description During socialism, several large industrial enterprises operated in the Czech Republic. These enterprises served as the centre of economic activity of cities or regions. Some of these enterprises experienced a decline in the transition process, which had negative effects on the local population. The aim of this paper is to present the significance of the enterprise Adamovské strojírny for the development of the towns of Adamov and Blansko during the era of socialism and the transition. The paper is prepared in the form of a case study, which is also the main method used. The enterprise not only served as a source of local employment and economic activity during the socialist era, but also invested in housing and civic amenities. In the transition period, the enterprise went into decline due to economic problems, which was reflected in the problems faced by the inhabitants of the towns of Adamov and Blansko. The paper demonstrates how the transition affected the life of the inhabitants in the towns where the once successful socialist enterprise was located.
