Recent studies have demonstrated that many regions in Western Europe are experiencing a gradual transition from a monocentric model to one predicated on polycentrism, where a number of cities play the role of autonomous centres of development bound to one another by an intricate network of cooperation. In Poland, the polycentric model of settlement is a key component of regional development policy. The aim of this study is to define the level of polycentricity of the Mazovia region in Poland. Our approach focuses on assessing the importance of subregional centres in the spatial structure of the region including their contribution to the socio-economic development of Mazovia. We assume the hypothesis that despite the concept of increasing the level of polycentricity in the Mazovia region declared in strategic documents, the actual socio-economic development trends are not expected to enhance the role of five subregional centres and thus raising their rank in relation to Warsaw.
