There are only a few attempts in scientific literature trying to evaluate intelligence of the city and to find methods providing the better understanding of the phenomenon is still a big problem. The recent scientific literature is concerned mostly with describing the characteristics of the intelligent city, but points a little interest to the development of these features in a particular social system. This article continues the presentation of methodology for evaluation of city’s intelligence published in the previous volume of this journal. The aim of this article is to propose criteria for evaluation of city’s intelligence based on productive knowledge creation, empowering infrastructure and promising decision making. The article points the need to evaluate intelligence of the city by using integrated methodology composed of qualitative and quantitative indicators in order to better understand not only the result of intelligence activities but also the mind-set by which that result came.
