Description In this paper the authors deal with the issues of services for the population in model rural regions of Bohemian-Moravian borderland. Selected services (education, health care and retail) were assessed from the aspect of the dynamics of changes during the transformation period after the year 1989. Aside from minor exceptions, the development in the elapsed period of more than twenty years has followed a pattern of moderate increase in availability of services for the rural population. Therefore, a hypothesis on the decrease in availability of services in rural areas was not confirmed, even though it must be taken into consideration that the assessment was carried out based on absolute numbers, not taking into account the quality of the services offered. A field survey formed the basis of the assessment, collecting also data on facilities available in rural municipalities at the end of 1980s. The paper is a contribution to the discussion about the current position of the Czech countryside in contrast with the strengthening globalisation and deepening social and economic differences in space.
