Opis: The opening of the internal borders among the member states of the European Union (EU) has not only caused the development of different socio-economic processes, but also of new urban potential in the areas lying across the national borders. Although there has recently been a remarkable upsurge of activities and interests in the regions and areas along the borders regarding the formation of border regions and cross- border processes, they mostly remain quite rigidly within specialised disciplinary fields, i.e. economy, geography, and sociology. There is, however, much less interest in cross-border areas seen in the light of spatial and urban development processes within EU integration. The article provides an overview of specific urban formations through the presentation of selected cases of cross-border regions and, in addition, aims to open some new issues with regard to the context of Slovenian border regions. On the basis of their morphological, economic, and social characteristics, a range of urban typologies, such as cross-border agglomerations, urban exclaves, bi-national border cities etc. will be identified and analysed from different aspects of spatial development.
