Abstract: Cities and regions in Eastern Europe have entered into a new phase of urbanisation, which changes dramatically land use patterns. The liberalization of economy and the membership of the EU have led to the growing involvement to the European market and EU development schemes (e.g. TEN/T, ERDF, etc.). What shapes urban sprawl will take and will it cause new threads to sustainability remains to be seen. In this paper we focus on the Dresden (G) – Prague (CZ) transport corridor and try to test the impact of diverse economic development trends on urbanisation processes. Several development scenarios are produced in order to model the spatial pattern of urban land use, based on “cellular automata” (CA) model approach.
