The urban system in Romania
AbstractA characteristic of the Romanian urban system has been the alternation of the periods of order and turbulence. Order is dominant in the short term but over the longer term is no absolute stability in the dynamics of the city. Instability, at the urban system level, is determined by the dynamic relationship between cities which upset the local, regional and national hierarchies, producing a disorder similar to the turbulence and even chaos. Thus the evolution of the urban system in Romania in the last decades has seen the alternation of periods of stability and instability, even if on the whole there is a relatively constant hierarchy and configuration at different levels. Thus the new national urban system is the result of a chain of fluctuation affecting the inner evolutions of each city, and the categories of cities as a whole.
