Small towns in Śląskie voivodeship.

  • Elżbieta Zuzańska-Żyśko - University of Silesia in Sosnowiec, Poland

  • Keywords
    small towns, economic transformation, Śląskie voivodeship

    The paper shows small towns in the extremely urbanised and industrialised Śląskie Voivodeship (called Upper Silesia Region). The towns were divided into two groups: central towns surrounded by rural districts and specialised towns, which developed on the basis of industry and tourism. Economic activity and size structure of enterprises, of which the smallest enterprises, so important in the process of transformation were investigated. The regionally differentiated labour market was characterised by a number of employed persons in small and big enterprises.
