Model Examples of Regionalization and Their Application Contribution in the Olomouc Region

Administrative division of the Olomoucký region mostly respects historical borders, which were active in the past, particularly their course in the 1930s and 1940s (with the exception of the war period), i.e. borders of political and judicial districts. Th eir relation to current administration areas of municipalities with extended authority and areas with commissioned local authorities is more than obvious. Th e lagerst changes occurred along the border of the Přerov and Prostějov districts (Němčice nad Hanou x Kojetín), changes in regional centres occurred also in the Jeseník (Vidnava) and Šumperk regions (Staré Město x Hanušovice, Štíty, Vizmberk). In the region we have delimited 19 nodal regions on the basis of labour and school commuting and 20 modelled areas according to the Reilly´s law, which are more or less similar to the areas of municipalities with commissioned local authority. As the most problematic area of the region Javornicko has been identifi ed, whose role is in our opinion overestimated, since practical and theoretical relations of half of the municipalities of the administrative area of Javorník fl ow towards Jeseník. Another interesting area is the southwest of the region, part of the Prostějov region, where we can fi nd municipalities which on the basis of commuting and theoretical relations do not belong to the Olomoucký region (according to commuting they belong to Blansko, theoretically the infl uence of Brno is evident as well. Th e same problem can be found at the contact of the Přerov and Lipník regions (three municipalities belong according to selected criteria to the infl uence sphere of Bystřice pod Hostýnem) and the municipality of Hustopeče nad Bečvou (theoretically and practically belonging to Valašské Meziříčí). In other parts of the region the regions that have been delimited are the same or slightly diff erent (one or two municipalities) from administrative areas.
