The aim of this paper is to analyze the development of school geography education during post-socialist transformation. Drawing upon theories of transformation and curriculum theory, the paper analyzed curricula from selected post.-socialist European countries. Qualitative content analysis served the map both content and skills introduced by the educational documents. The results show that national geographies are still disconnected from international perspectives, hold on to a traditional view of geography, and contain no specific geographical skills.
