We live in times of contradicting globalisation processes, tensions between civilisations and conflicts between different cultures. We consider globalisation, which with regards to all its advantageous and disadvantageous traits critically as an ambivalent phenomenon. It is currently the reason and context of the intercultural and the transcultural phenomena. However, it is necessary to realise that the result of all the factors influencing of globalisation always takes place at a specific location. A global network integrates and absorbs local networks to the global system, not excluding even the urban units – towns. The objective of this article is to disrobe the process of globalisation in the “railway town” and increase awareness of some connections between global and local phenomena.
