The central area of this city is examined. Rents were absent during communism, but this did not lead to an indiscriminate land-use mix. The CBD was extended southwards by the construction of office blocks and department stores in the 1970s. The arrival of the market has modified this land-use pattern as manufacturing has almost entirely disappeared. The redundant space has been taken up by wholesaling, retailing and offices, forming a multiple land-use transition zone round the central office and retailing spine
