Slovak towns and their typological analysis

Dagmar Kaliská


A degree of development of industrial production and the country’s forwardness are mutually related. Revitalisation of the country’s production traditions and crafts in the current modern understanding of technologies should be developed broadly that means in the urban as well as rural environment. We often try to find the proper understanding of the modern development in our resturns to the past. The Middle Ages were outstanding from this point of view. The unity of living and production marked the building character of numerous Slovak villages as well. Production as a form-making element of every settlement creates new quality of that environment from the point of view of space, mass, composition and function. The housing environment is enriched by this old and new phenomenon.
