The overall transition of post-socialist countries has been one of major contemporary processes in Europe. This transition has been comprehensive and multilayer; from planned to market economy; from industrial era to post-industrial era, from one-party to multi-party system, from self-dependence to globalisation. This process has been sudden and loosely controlled in many ways, so it has the elements of a “shock therapy”.
The "Introduction: Danubian City in Post-socialist Ttransformation" is a part of chapter “3 — Potentials and Challenges of the Present”.

Item Type:Book Section
Additional Information:The Danube is the most international and multicultural river on Earth, the main connection for cultures in Central Europe and the Balkans, but also a spatial system fragmented by borders in need to reconnect in its identity. The natural wonders of this river and the capital cities on its shores usually get all the attention, but it is the smaller towns, often neglected in peripheral situations, that still today hold the multicultural essence of the Danubian Region. With this Atlas compiled by the DANUrB partnership our intention is to present urban communities along the Danube River which share similar tangible and intangible heritage in their local identities. One of the main aims of the DANUrB INTERREG Project is the reactivation of underused cultural heritage and resources in shrinking settlements of Danube river’s peripheral and border regions in order to make them more attractive again.
