sustainability concept, geography, regions, Krkonoše Mts.
The article is aimed at the possibilities of application of the sustainability concept on the regional level, with special regard to possibilities of spatial differentiation based on the analysis of sustainability, which can be projected into sustainable management of regions. After introducing some basic remarks on the sustainabi-lity concept the article discusses potential of geographical science for the research of sustainability and highlights contribution of geography to renewal of the paradigm of sustainability that seems to stagnate mostly at the global level. Theoretical suggestions are then briefly applied to the region of the Giant Mts. (Krkonoše), Czech Republic, which, as a Biosphere Reserve, are predestined to be such a research issue. The main contributions of geography to the sustainability concepts are seen in the ability of synthetic approach to the research issues and ability of spatial differentiation, which enables us to examine lower hierarchical levels.
