Summary/Abstract: The examples of world heritage with further research within the thesis make it possible to identify the main principles of modern ecological urban space. The revealed aspects illustrate how inextricably linked and all kinds of opportunities and three-dimensional design tools that combine urban area and the natural environment in a single complex object-spatial tasks. Based on analysis of the urban environment were identified by basic techniques that successfully used in Eco-design of cities. They are the using of non-waste technologies of shaping and recycling; application of modular principles of the environment by «baukasten»; including plants in the structure of the building for aeration air. They also are versatility; no consumption of electricity (exception: street lighting element), using of renewable energy – solar, wind, aeration and noise profiles, the using of alternative energy sources; using associative, interactive, natural imitation and pastiche objects; harmonious combination of the historical and new objectspatial environment; adaptability designed environment to the existing landscape. World experience in environmental design represents huge potential for creating a high level of comfort and environmental sustainability in the urban environment. The tasks of designers are adapting to environmental concept for consumers to use in modern design national and local traditions, as well as in developing solutions that contribute to the maintenance and development of environmentally sustainable environmental surroundings. Further scientific research trends of the recreational cities areas, based on identified techniques are sound basis for the definition of modern environmental principles of object-spatial environment of the city.
