Description One of the basic transforming processes of the period after 1989 is the process of demilitarization. Among other things, one of its consequences is the emergence of abandoned military buildings and areas – so-called military brownfields. This kind of brownfield has a large number of specifics, to which subsequent revitalization necessarily must be adapted. As a large portion of these areas is situated within municipalities or is directly adjacent, it is essential that the revitalization of these sites must be approached with great sensitivity. Two examples of an approach to the revitalization of former barracks sites located within cities are shown in this article.
