Bogusław Luchter - Changes in land use in selected areas of City of Cracow between 1848 and 2008
The paper aims at evaluation of changes in land use that took place within last 160 years (1848-2008) in selected administrative areas of Cracow. The research included several such spatial – administrative entities but only in case of former administrative district of Podgórze, such evaluation has been feasible. In case of the other (i.e. former administrative districts; presently fundamental land survey registration entities, cadaster entities , i.e. former villages and towns included in the City of Cracow, registration districts etc.), comparability in such long term is not possible and would require further research or arduous calculations, not always feasible, tough, as the access to data and sources of historic significance is limited. Further observation of the process of land use transformations in the longer period of time, is possible if former administrative districts are retained as fundamental land survey registration entities and it also allows for spatial differentiation of the analyzed phenomena.

Agnieszka Kowalska - Real Estate Agency in Spain and in Poland
Real estate agencies seem to work according to the same rules in particular European countries. Some real estate’s features as well as a recession on the European real estate market as a result of American crisis may lead to this conclusion. Anyway some of the cultural differences may have a great impact on the activity of this kind of institutions. Comparative analysis was carried out in Plock and Santiago de Compostela, because of a similar number of inhabitants and also of this kind of firms in these cities. The research showed that although there are a lot of similarities related to the number of employees, the time of existing on the market, having subsidiaries or the ways of promotion, agencies have some different features. One of them is a willingness to negotiate with a client as far as commission is considered, as well as the hours of work, where cultural differences are also significant. Anyway the most surprising result is the attitude to the students that may want to have practice in this kind of firms. In this case Spanish students have incomparably more opportunities although they are not very prone to gain some professional experience. People working in real estate agencies are keen to take part in some similar research in future. Their openness may have a positive impact on a real estate market, which is very difficult to analyze because of its specific features.
