The economic development of the capital results in its spatial development. The nature of this development is not correct, as a zone of agglomeration without planned urbanization extends on its periphery and beyond its borders. The growth of the agglomeration without a common plan poses a threat to the identity of the small cities embedded in it. The next big threat is the underdevelopment of rail-based integrated public transportation that binds Warsaw and the agglomeration together, especially in its southern part.
