Changes in the rural landscape of the Polish Sudety Mountains in the post-war period

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In the post-war period, the area of the Sudety Mountains has been subject to two main trends regarding the transformation of the landscape in rural areas. In a first phase, it was possible to observe an abrupt depopulation process, with a disappearance of many villages. From the end of the 1990s, a new trend began to make itself apparent. This entailed an intensive development of single-family building construction, including the form of summer homes. This development has been chaotic in many areas, and the result has been disruption of the spatial order. Various actions are today underway with a view to the typical cultural landscape being reinstated and protected, with the rural aspect of the mountain landscape being promoted as an attribute favourable to further regional development
