This contribution presents a comparison of the results of research up to present time of Silesian-Czech relations, or the levels of communication between both land metropolises, Prague and Wroclaw, in the Early Modern Age, based on the opportunities for study of archival material in the Wroclaw State Archives and the Municipal Archives of Prague. It throws light upon the structure of preserved archival material which can be used for the given purpose; methods of their evaluation, and the perspectives for future research. In its conclusion there is a foray into several groups of resources from the fields of trade, crafts, religion, and the migration of inhabitants, which confirms the limited contacts between the two cities in the Early Modern Age, also mentioned in literature and Shifts in these contacts only occurred in connection with changes of political development.
