Summary/Abstract: Taking over the definition that determines power as a capability imposing will of one political subject to other wills, power in contemporary international relations is defined in four ways: power as the aim of the state or of political elits and leaders; power as measure of impact, i.e. control; power as exposition of security and power as capability of using resources. In continuation, division of power into „hard“ and „soft“ power is analyzed, as well as basic facts of classic power. Turning over to evolution of international relations after the end of the Cold War and intensification processes of globalization, the author concludes that the classic concept power is still actual in contemporary conditions.
