Abstract [en]

This introductory article identifies and discuss five key legacy aspects of post-Communism for the urban geography of Eastern and Central Europe. These are concerned with (1) central planning, (2) land allocation, (3) the second economy, (4) defence considerations, and (5) the implications of the ideological leadership of the communist parties. The discussion is based on the existing literature and on the five articles in this theme issue. The introduction ends with proposing a general evolutionary model for suburbanisation, and with some suggestions for further research within the field of post-Communist urban geography.
