Abstract (in english)
   In this paper we focus on the mechanisms affecting land-use patterns, namely urban sprawl, within the Morava River floodplain. The extreme conditions of the 1997 floods and their aftermath have been chosen to demonstrate the ineffectiveness of the Czech bureaucracy in the field of landscape protection and land-use management. The main aim is not to describe all the causes and consequences of the 1997 floods for which there is mushrooming literature, but to show how, in spite of a well established bureaucratic and legal system, institutional fragmentation, institutional lock-in and institutional thinness contribute to this system's ineffectiveness. Three examples of new post-flood development are introduced as examples of brittle thinking on the part of those institutions responsible for land-use management within the Morava River floodplain
