Popis The aim of the paper is to identify, analyze and evaluate the barriers that public administration representatives have to face during the preparation and implementation of the Smart City strategy in the Czech Republic as one of the principles of modern sustainable urban development. The goal will be achieved through theoretical assumptions, analysis of sustainable and smart urban environment and especially through qualitative research, specifically by structured interviews with stakeholders who are responsible for the Smart City strategy implementations. The interviews will take place in three Czech cities, namely Prague – the capital, Brno – the winner of the ITAPA 2018 AWARD in category V4 region, and Zlín – an example of the city “on the way” that has no Smart City Strategy implemented at the moment but is running many smart projects within the city ecosystem. Barriers will be classified and divided into two categories – external and internal. Based on examples of good practices from abroad, measures will be proposed that should prevent the emergence of these obstacles right at the very beginning or, at least, mitigate them at their origin. The main identified problems were shortage of experts in the Smart City area, political unrest, poor interconnection with existing legislation and excessive bureaucracy. The proposed measures then focus mainly on the exchange of the best practices among municipalities, the legislative changes and a greater public awareness.
