Urbanized settlement systems may be regarded as the territorial expression of inter-settlement relations based either on a vary high degree of socio-economic gravitation of bigger towns or on a deep inter-settlement functional cooperation. They can be divided mho three groups: a) town-hinterland, b) micro-conurbation, c) macro-conurbation. Attention is further paid to the group "town-hinterland". The process of "outgrowing" of nodal territorial relations into the urbanized settlement system is generally realized in three phases. The first phase Is marked by the deepening and intensification of socio-economic nodal processes. In the second phase qualitative traits of towns are transmitted to their hinterlands. In the third phase the growth dynamics of "point" towns disperses in the surrounding area (hinterland). For a concrete demonstration of one hierarchical degree of the urbanized settlement system of "town-hinterland" 246 regions of Centres of District Meaning have been utilized in Czechoslovakia.
