ABSTRACT
The paper explains the role of countryside in modern social processes and the importance of its intertwining with cities. We emphasize the overview of modern trends in settlement development and land use and point out the processes that do not correspond with planned goals. Through simulating developmental consequences in several typical areas of different developmental possibilities and by referring to spontaneous processes, we are discussing the overgrowth of agricultural land and its transformation into built up space. At the end we offer a possible direction for future countryside development with the help of a simulation model.
