Summary/Abstract: During the historical development of urban-type human settlements, spaces of public and private use have evolved. Public space, as an expression of social life as well as cultural and functional transformations, is an intrinsic element of the spatial structure of the city. Contemporary Uniejów had developed on the basis of two centers, located on both sides of the Warta river: a market settlement and medieval town on the right bank, and a castle on the left bank. The development of the public space system of Uniejów can be divided into three stages, which illustrate the evolution of relations between the town and the castle, and changes of the town’s functions. Amplification of recreational, cultural, touristic, and (currently) health resort functions created a strong stimulus for development of the public space network, which has now assumed a more complex form – a multi-knot and multi-axis network-type structure. This network is the main public space of Uniejów.
