Abstract :
Raises the question of what the minimal conditions for the presence of an urban culture might be. These include the presence of a critical mass of population not dependent on the land, and forms of commercial activity which are registered in the physical fabric of the place, accompanied by modes of sociability characterized by regular and high levels of interaction which occur in buildings and spaces provided for the purpose (such as pubs and cafés). Although at the end of the 19th c. many of the towns in eastern Europe had acquired several of the features of modern urban culture such as theatres and opera houses, museums and transport and lighting systems, only Prague resembled Budapest and Vienna in possessing the dense and complex urban culture of a major city. ;
