Description The aim of this contribution is to analyze and evaluate the success and position of cities of Visegrad Group in the Smart City indices. The concept of Smart Cities has been anchored in regional sciences in order to improve the management of cities. The so-called Smart City rankings determine the degree of smartness or the degree of fulfilment of individual attributes of the Smart City concept. These Smart City attributes are presented and correlated with Smart City concept definitions. In order to be able to interpret the Smart City indices, it is necessary to pay attention in this paper to the criteria that make up the indices. A partial goal of this contribution is to analyze the development of Czech cities within the relevant indices. To achieve the presented objectives of this paper, a literature review on Smart Cities and Smart City index is used. Furthermore, a comparative regional analysis of the Smart City concept of Visegrad Group was carried out. The data about the position of the cities of the Visegrad Group are obtained from five international rankings of city’s smartness. The findings of this paper indicate that the most successful city within the Visegrad Group in the Smart City rankings is the capital of the Czech Republic Prague.
