Abstract

This article has sought to elucidate the difference between the urban agglomeration and the metropolitan area, in the light of the output of Polish urban geography. Special attention is paid to the relationship between the ways of conceiving the above entities in respect of the morphological and functional aspects to a large city’s structure. An overview of cognitive and planning achievements in the field of the delimitation of urban agglomerations and metropolitan areas in Poland is also offered, the primary conclusion from the work being that the metropolis and its metropolitan area, as a concentration of high-order functions and international-scale links, represents a more advanced stage in the development of the large-city settlement system than does the urban agglomeration. - (BJ)
