In this article, the assumption is made that cultural value orientations are not only inherited by path, but are also passed on and exchanged between social collectives. Secondly, it is proposed to consider sub-national regions as separate cultural spaces. In order to check whether a cultural spillover takes place between regions, dyadic analyzes are carried out on the basis of the ESS (2002-2008) using a case study (Austria). The Nuts2 regions serve as analysis units. The results show, on the one hand, that the national border has a comparatively clear effect on the cultural distance between regions; On the other hand, neighboring regions are culturally more similar than non-neighboring regions across the country's borders.
