Summary/Abstract: In the scientific literature there are different opinions on the factors that lead to urban sprawl. There are no summarizing concepts about the basic reasons and factors. That is why, it is necessary to find out and study the factors which cause this process in view of preventing the negative consequences of urban sprawl – ecological, social and economic ones. The goal of this paper is to analyse, systematize and group the plentiful factors which influence urban sprawl.
