Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Northeastern Slovakia belongs to the least developed backcountries within the republic. Poor technical infrastructure, marginal location and the deficit of employment opportunities lead to the land abandonment and emigration. Several factors have been governed a development of the region. The crucial was the construction of water reservoir (Starina 1980-1986 as a source of drinking water). The construction caused the evacuation and removal of 7 villages and subsequently the changes in land use. At present, the region is being oriented to the recreational activities and tourism. From this point of view, the existence the National Park Poloniny, as well as, the Biospheric Reserve East Carpathians could be a positive factor. The paper is focused on trends in landscape development and attitudes of stakeholders to these changes. - (BJ)
