Tureček, Josef ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Fialová, Dana (referee)
Image of city cycle paths: an example of the Prague cycle route Zbraslav-centrum Abstract This study aims to contribute to a discussion on the role of cycle paths in shaping the image of the Prague city. It compares well-established cycle paths in foreign agglomerations with a model cycle path in Prague. Bicycle paths present a phenomenon both in Prague and throughout the Czech Republic, the use of which has an increasing tendency and has a potential to positively shape the image of cities. Some Prague cycle paths are developed well and some insufficiently. We also identify the positive impact of cycle paths on urban infrastructure. In the theoretical part, the work deals with a search of adequate literature and also with experience with thematically similar studies abroad. In the practical part, the presented bachelor's thesis analyzes a contribution of the A2 cycle path to building a better image of the city. We believe that this study will help draw attention to yet underestimated part of the transport infrastructure and will bring an inspiration for planning and further development of Prague. Keywords Image; cycle paths; Prague cycle path A2; Prague.
Historical development of crossborder co-operation in Czechia after 1989 on the example of Euroregions
Mňuk, Tomáš ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Jeřábek, Milan (referee)
Since the 1990s, cross-border cooperation has been an instrument of the European Union for the development of geographically disadvantaged regions at the border, for which cooperation should be a way to cope economically with the central areas and be an instrument for the often isolated and culturally different inhabitants of the border. Euroregions, which were established to solve regional economic, institutional, or social problems, became a platform for cross-border co-operation activities. One of the objectives of the thesis was to describe the circumstances of the establishment of Euroregions and development of the activity of Euroregions in Czechia with the assumption of regional differentiation. The method used for this part was a desk research and semi-structured interviews. Thanks to finances from the European Regional Development Fund, cross-border cooperation is supported in the form of subsidies, which are available for individual program periods for applicants from defined areas near the border. The Czech parts of the Euroregions are administrators of Small Project Funds, which include projects with a small financial scope, mostly supporting meeting activities of local communities. The second goal of the thesis was the comparison of the funds of individual Czech Euroregions over...

Regional Differentiation of Swahili Identity - Case Study of Vanga and Ushongo
Mbezi, Barbora ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Frajer, Václav (referee)
This thesis deals with the formation of the Swahili identity within two countries: Kenya and Tanzania. The Swahili people have inhabited the East African coast since the first millennium, utilizing local resources to trade and to create their sophisticated social position. The philosophy of Islam had a considerable influence on the development of the Swahili culture. These traditional elements typical for the Swahili culture were significantly restricted by the period of colonialism, where newly formed boundaries divided this ethnic group. The situation on both sides of the border is analysed through quantitative and qualitative research, which offers a complex view on the issue. The results show that selected cities are very similar with only small differences - often related to the closeness or openness of the village towards increasing tourism. In general the established boundaries play almost no role in shaping the Swahili identity. The Swahili people retain their traditional position within the East African coast, although their relations with other countries are less pronounced as the distance between them increases.

Klubal, Jan ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kotrlý, Tomáš (referee)
Sacral objects in Czechia: changes and new forms Jan Klubal, DP 2010 ABSTRACT This thesis deals with the sacral objects which are understood as physical indicators of the religious behaviour of population. Although Czech society is considered to be one of the most secularized in the terms of church adherence in Europe, it does not mean that Czechs are atheistic nation. Due to their scepticism to all organized forms of religion which is caused by the specific historical development of Czech country, people prefer the alternative forms of religiosity including ocultism and other spiritual practics. The main aim of this thesis is to explore whether and how the transformation of religiosity in Czechia affects the religious landscape. This will be shown on the case of sacral objects identified in model areas Praha, Pelhřimov and Kaplice. The first part makes a survey of present knowledge relevant to sacral objects issue. This section consists of the review of literature, the definition of main terms and the description of applied methods. The next part deals with the historical development and current situation of religion and religious landscape in Czechia. The last section summarizes and discusses the results of field survey and compares the religious landscape of model areas. The review of interviews is also...

Pavlátová, Andrea ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Blahůtová Kavanová, Klára (referee)
The Development of Tibetan Cultural and Religious Identity among Tibetans Living outside of Historical Tibet The topic of my thesis was to find out changes in Tibetan society inside Tibet and in Tibetan exile in last 50. years and how do changes help to progress social capital. Inside Tibet is problem with high percent of nonliterary and high percent of incoming Han people, which cause that Tibetan people are getting on the edge of society, because they didn't have developed their human potential. The main problem is that Tibetan people don't know Chinese language well and this language is becoming more useful for daily life in Tibetan autonomous region. Tibetans, who are very religious, don't have opportunity to practice Tibetan Buddhism under communistic rule of Chine. Tibetans have to renounce His Holiness dalajlama and deny part of their Tibetan identity. Those reasons influence them to escape into exile. The second part of my thesis is concerned to describe push and pull factors of migration. As I found in materials, the main reasons to escape into exile were political, religion, education, economical problems and renounce dalajlama. In my research, Tibetan didn't divide those reasons to those categories, because they think of those problems in holistic way. The last part of thesis in...
