O článku:
Spatial interactions including interurban relationships have always been principal in geographical research. Public transport networks represent spatial elements employing existing transport infrastructure and reflecting spatial (especially interurban) relationships. Research on the spatial attributes of the public transport system may help to identify the strength, orientation and quality of interurban relationships. Numerous studies by geographers and other experts use public transportation links for spatial analysis of interurban and interregional bonds. The paper is focused on an analysis of interurban connections within the network of 138 towns and cities (with the urban statute) in Slovakia based on evaluation of direct public transport connections covered by both train and bus services, surveyed in 2010. Special attention is paid to interurban relationships within the territorial administrative units of Slovakia (NUTS III level) and the spatial integrity of these units is examined through the quality and direction of connections with regional capitals. The study also shows the quality of mutual public-transport connectivity of regional capitals. The results indicate that interurban interactions are rather weak in some of the NUTS III units. Rather than administrative identity, position in transport infrastructure networks and geographical position seem to be more important in the mutual connectivity of urban centres.
