A spatial development of Wrocław – after dismantling of the fortification at the beginning of the 19th century – marked an expansionism of the city that started using the area joined then. This expansionism brought changes in macro and micro scale. Macro changes caused succession of using the land e. g. increasing of built-up area and organizing of green belts instead of previous farms. Profiles of use of lands that are representative results of traverses routed randomly on maps from four researched periods show this process (image 1). Micro changes meant planning the streets, forming urban blocks and filling them by buildings. These processes created a rich combination of morphological sets (image 2) and contributed to modernization of the city area of Wrocław.
