 Summary:
 Both urban research and planning practice lately signifficantly contributed to understanting and dealing with the phenomenon of urban shrinkage. Although affected the most by population decrease and industrial regression since the political changes in 1990, these advancements seem to have had varied influence in the former Central and Eastern Europe. The focus of this paper is thus set on the problem of signifficant population decline in the particular urban context of the Republic of Serbia that was still neither fully recognized nor adequaltly addressed. Through consideration of some international examples of strategic advancements in dealing with shrinkage (particularly of Leipzig in Germany and Detroit in the US), the aim is to draw attention to this issue, question solution transferability, as well as point out at some future perspectives for shrinking urban realm in Serbia.
