  14. 14. Argumentation For the inhabitants, the changes are perceived mainly in their lifestyle, in the way that they “use” the city: through public space network. We need to invest in the in the “quality of city’s tangible assets” (Friedmann, 2007)- quality of peoples environment in order to achieve a prosperity for the city and ensure a continuity of its iden- tity. We can do this by highlighting its strong spatial characteristics and cultural assets through public space.

  24. 24. Academic relevance In the first stage of the transition of post -socialist cities ‘Urban’ literature uses western urban knowledge in order to restructure the post socialist cities. Today problems on the agenda of the post socialist cities are similar to western cities. ‘Low cost’ urban revitalization, using the local assets can become a valuable approach for the western cities.
