Summary/Abstract: Many theoretical and practical works deal with the spatial structure of Europe. This article gives an overview of these papers focusing on Central and Eastern Europe. Our goal is to contribute to understanding the Central and Eastern European spatial structure through a new methodological approach. The research question is how the biggest companies and cities which host the biggest corporate headquarters affect the economic spatial structure of Central and Eastern Europe. Is there any overlap with the former spatial structure models? To study these research questions many methods are applied, such as the Eastern European Command and Control Index, a kindly novel approach to measure the competitiveness of cities and the spatial cluster analysis as well. This research draws the attention to the increasing importance of the capital cities and to the fact that the New Banana model covers the largest area in the region.
