Historical borders as a factor influencing socio-geographical differentiation - example of Czechia and Poland
Torgalo, Alexandr ; Netrdová, Pavlína (advisor) ; Burda, Tomáš (referee)
Historical border is any national or administrative boundary that has disappeared in the past. These boundaries are often still visible in the landscape, e.g., physically in the form of boundary stones. However, sometimes these boundaries have an impact in the socio-economic environment, long decades and sometimes centuries after their function have ceased. They are a common phenomenon in Europe where boundary changes have been frequent, especially in Poland and Ukraine. The aim of this thesis is to measure the effect of historical borders on contemporary spatial differentiation of socio-economic phenomena using the example of Czechia and Poland, focusing on the border of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia in Czechia and the borders of European powers after the so-called third partition of Poland. It was examined on which sections of which types of borders the effect is most visible, on which types of spatial phenomena the historical borders have the greatest impact, and how the strength of the border effect and the spatial distribution of socio-economic phenomena have changed over the last 20 years. It was found that after 2011, the effect of historical borders in both Czechia and Poland is weakening, especially in demographic indicators, as the former German territories of both countries no...
Travel behaviour of Czech football clubs' fans
Dvořák, Filip ; Marada, Miroslav (advisor) ; Burda, Tomáš (referee)
In this paper we describe the travel behaviour of football fans based on a literature search and a questionnaire survey. The aim of this thesis is to describe what drives fans to visit football stadiums. We know that there are many fans of football clubs in the Czech Republic, but also that their behaviour is often very heterogeneous. Starting, for example, with the frequency of visits supporting their favourite club during home and away matches. We expect the support at the home stadium to be much higher. But more interesting for us will be mainly the outings of football fans. Whether to support their favourite team at away games in the Czech Republic or on long cross-border trips. It is not uncommon for an individual to support their club that is located a long distance from their home. We expect that large Prague clubs will have a fan base spread more widely across the country, while provincial clubs such as Viktoria Plzeň or Sigma Olomouc will have fans more concentrated in their region. Therefore, we want to find out the frequency of trips, what means of transport they choose, who they travel with, etc. But also how much time they spend in the city and whether they visit any sights or shops together with the match. A very specific group will be the European Cup matches, which Czech clubs play...

Beer tourism in the Liberec Region
Vonička, Martin ; Vágner, Jiří (advisor) ; Burda, Tomáš (referee)
The dissertation is one of a number of contributions to the research of a rather new form of tourism - beer tourism, or gastronomy tourism in a broader context. In the first part of the dissertation, the topic is grasped theoretically. Firstly, beer tourism is defined as one of the alternative forms of spending leisure time, and it is classified within tourism typology, alongside the better-known wine tourism. Tourists currently prefer the alternative forms, with an emphasis on, besides other things, tradition, authenticity and experience, which make up the values typical for participating in beer tourism. In spite of this form being at the start of its expansion in the Czech Republic, in the last few years, its dynamic has been immense, which is documented by plain statistics. In the past 3 years, almost half of the current 340 Czech breweries have been established. Further in the text, the product of beer tourism is defined and its typology is created, by which the supply side of tourism on the level of the Czech Republic as well as the Liberec region is later analysed. The second part focuses on the assessment of a questionnaire survey, with the objective of assessing the respondents' perception of the beer market and tourism in the Liberec region. The questionnaire survey is followed up by...
Sweden and European Integration in the Field of Security
Burda, Tomáš ; Jireš, Jan (advisor) ; Polášek, Martin (referee)
The thesis "Sweden and European Integration in the Field of Security" deals with the Swedish role in the military dimension of the EU"s Common Security Policy. The thesis applies the concept of "Integration Dilemma" that forms the basis of the theory of national integration policy formulated by Nikolaj Petersen. The thesis draws on Petersen"s premise that all states involved in integration sooner or later experience an integration dilemma constituted by difficult choices between preserving autonomy and exercising influence on other participants. According to Petersen the salience of the integration dilemma differs among states depending on their influence capability, stress sensitivity and degree of identification with ideological sources of integration. Petersen argues that to handle the dilemma, national governments will most likely use adaptive strategies typical for the "balancing policy" mode. Petersen also predicts that countries characterised by high stress sensitivity, limited influence capability and aloofness from the ethos of European integration will perceive the dilemma as highly salient. Petersen assumes that integration policies of those countries will also include strategies characteristic for the "acquiescent" or "quiescent" mode. Petersen"s hypotheses are tested in the analysis of...
The importance of symbols for national identity formation in Scotland
Kluchová, Adéla ; Jelen, Libor (advisor) ; Burda, Tomáš (referee)
The Importance of Symbols for National Identity Formation in Scotland This diploma thesis deals with the importance of symbols for national identity formation in contemporary Scotland. Selected phenomena are explored from two points of view: the first one analyzes the symbols reproduced "from above" by the official tourist agency and political representation and occurence of these symbols in public space. The second examines the subjective perception of Scottish national identity and its symbols. A combination of mostly qualitative research methods has been used in the study, the analysis of virtual data (Hendl 2016) was complemented by findings from a field survey in Scotland, which included e.g. monitoring of the data concerning the occurence of Scottish national symbols in the public space, and 10 standardized open interviews with residents of Edinburgh and Glasgow. The symbols presented by the tourist agency are predominantly ethno-historical, such as tartan, thisle or traditional Scottish music, whereas the political representation of Scottish national identity is dominated by the symbolism of a fair, just and pacifist community and a clear definition of the Scottish national identity towards the English one. The subjective perception of Scottish national identity combines both approaches....
