Abstract:

This study seeks to show – by reference to the example of Poland’s capital city – the important role played by green infrastructure in a city’s spatial structure, as well as the functions served as an important element of urban space exerting an influence on people’s quality of life. The article describes the spatial structure characterising Warsaw’s green infrastructure, its different component parts, and its connections with undeveloped areas surrounding the city. Attention is paid to the different shares that biologically active areas account for in the different Districts making up Warsaw. Also, predictions are made regarding likely directions of change in the city’s land-cover structure.
