The aim of this paper is to present a brief analysis of the migration of theinhabitants in the Czech capital of Prague according to 110 so-called "cadastral units"(the source of data was the Central Register of Population) in the period of1986-1990. These objective data are compared to the preferences and imagination ofthe inhabitants of Prague concerning the most convenient places for permanentliving (the source of data was a questionnaire survey carried out in 1990, N = cca400). There is discussion in the paper as well as an empirical attempt (StepwiseRegression) to find the relations among the processes of migration, preference andgeographic, socio-economic and demographic structures of the town.
