The aim of the article is to present selected solutions applied in urban planning, which, even contemporarily, can be used as models. The paper presents a review of selected concepts of model cities from the antiquity to contemporary times. The article presents methods of creating three-dimensional city models (or their flat presentations in so-called two and a half dimensions), including the historical conceptualization, portraying both the practical and aesthetical features of former map projections. Referring to historical examples, the article also includes historical and contemporary urban 3D models corresponding to analyzed conceptions.
