Regional geography which used to play such a prominent role in geography, is taught less often today. The author discusses the trends in regional geography since the Second World War. The reasons of the present crisis of regional geography are analysed. The author is suggesting that regional geography should come back as a fundamental branch of geography, but it must be the right type of regional geography.
