ABSTRACT
The paper is focused on detailed examination of population decentralization trends, projected in the spatial structure of cities and their hinterlands. For this specific purpose, we have chosen to analyze changes in the population density gradient between city and its suburban hinterland. For our study, we have chosen hinterlands of the four largest cities in Slovakia (Bratislava, Košice, Prešov and Žilina), dividing them into concentric zones, according to increasing distance from the historical centre of the aforementioned cities.
