    People with special needs are included in regular educational institutions increasingly often, which is often a result of legislation and inclusion. Students with physical disabilities are amongst them, of course, but in case of physical disabilities it is not enough to merely adjust the learning process, it is imperative that the student can access the necessary buildings, places, and rooms in which he can develop his abilities and skills, and that is why architectural adjustments are needed. In diploma paper we have been trying to establish whether and to what extent schools in the Podravska region are adjusted to the needs of the included physically disabled students. We have focused mainly on the entrance, access to the school gym, dressing rooms, toilets, equipment room, and outdoor playground. We have included 18 randomly picked schools in the region. The results show that access to the outdoor facilities is the one that is the least taken care of, since most of the schools have not got their own ones and therefore use public parks, accessible only via circulative or unpaved paths. Therefore, the physically disabled students mostly do not participate in physical education. Additionally, both entering the school and the school gym can be problematic due to stairs, narrow doors and rooms, and automatic doors. The accessibility of sport tools and equipment, and of the changing rooms was the best rated.
