The Determinants of Competitiveness of Small Towns as Regards Their Service Functionality
Languages of publication
The paper analyses trends in the spatial location of small and medium-sized towns in the Lower Silesian voivodeship. This paper focuses on the functions of towns in providing services to subregions. For this kind of establishments, accessibility is a key factor in the choice of location. Accessibility, in turn, depends on the structure of the transport system. A network creates some places which are easily accessible, especially when travelling in a particular direction.
