The modern city is increasingly seen as a socio-economic and natural system - they must be seen as complex entities. They differ in their development and size. Their identity, though rooted in history, is constantly changing. Over time they have undergone evolution caused by new needs. The modern city is a mirror of socio-economic problems, on the one hand. When exploring the city, it is necessary to apply a holistic approach and consider it as a system. The aim of this study is to develop a complex indicator for urban development which requires the application of a methodology for normalization, categorization and aggregation of data. The obtained result gives a concrete assessment of the development of the city in numerical expression on the basis of complex criteria, which allows adequate and clear comparison between the cities.
