This book identifies and describes the inter- and intra-urban transformations of Central and Eastern European cities. The authors discuss the similarities and differences between significant Central and Eastern European cities, comparing patterns of historical context and socialist legacies before 1990, and the impacts of internal and external forces on reshaping the cities since then. These themes are explored through case studies of capital cities in Central Europe (Berlin, Budapest, Prague, Ljubljana, and Warsaw), the Baltic States (Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius), Southeast Europe (Sofia) and Eastern Europe (Moscow).
