Keywords:

  • big city
  • limits of sustainability of city development
  • optimal city size
  • system-dynamic approach
  • The need to define the limits of city development sustainability taking into account its internal structure is substantiated. The review of the scientific works concerning the assessment of an ideal city size and describing the internal structure reveals a parallel, independent development of the studies in question. We show that their integration is the key to solving the problem of assessing the sustainability of city development under impetuous urbanization. Our own method of assessing the effectiveness of big city development based on system-dynamic approach can be used when integrating both research directions.
