About article:

The paper analyses the territorial structure of local government, its quantitative, qualitative and time-spatial changes in three Central European countries: the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic and the Hungarian Republic. The paper introduces the size structure of municipalities, their distribution over territory and defines the cities in the administrative structure. It also aims to examine the fragmentation phenomenon typical for the countries and seeks solutions for consolidation of the local level of government. The territorial arrangement of local governments and rescaling of powers have an impact on administrative efficiency. The paper, in a comparative way, offers the view into the inner territorial structure and sets the role of local governments since the middle of the 20th century.
