Pavel Chromý is an assoc. professor at the Charles University, Faculty of Science, Department of Social Geography and Regional Development, The Research Centre for Cultural and Historical Geography (head), Prague, Czechia.
His research focuses on issues of historical, cultural and regional geography, and environmental history. He studies the processes of formation of regions and territorial identities, particularly in relation to the development of specific areas (e.g. borderland, peripheral, rural and cultural areas) and landscape changes during the 19th and 20th centuries. Significant part of his professional interest is thus formed by the discussion of the significance of relict borders, symbolism of places and regions, landscape memory, natural and cultural heritage, and by its relations to regional development.
