ABSTRACT
The article deals with the spatial structure of the Czech banking sector. Bank headquarters and other banking activities affect the variation in economic power of different parts of the country. The advocated thesis is that spatial concentration of bank headquarters in the Czech Republic are only one of the manifestations of national centralisation, which corresponds to the traditional model centre-periphery.
