Cultural Services are considered as one of the main elements of cultural development. The purpose of this study is to assess the enjoyment of cultural aspects of the city، in order to achieve the level of regional inequality in the area. The population of the study includes fourteen areas of Isfahan. Considering the studied components، the ruling research approach is «descriptive، quantitative and analytical». In this study، 35 indicators are summarized using factor analysis and five factors were extracted and were presented in the form of the combination of the significant elements. Then، effects of each factor in the development of cultural services and certain areas were determined using TOPSIS model as a method of decision making and applying multiple indicators and forming entropy weight method in five classes (too much enjoyed، enjoyed، medium، deprived، very deprived)، the position of each of the regions having the aforementioned indices were determined. By creating a regression relationship between the factors influencing TOPSIS rate، factors affecting the development of cultural services areas were identified. Findings revealed that، Isfahan urban areas are not equal in terms of enjoyment of cultural indicators and there are significant differences in the degree of enjoyment of cultural facilities and spaces between the regions. Of the total of 14 urban areas، regions 1 and 3 are at the level of too much enjoyed and regions five and six are the second level and area 4 and 8 and 12 are the semi-enjoyed (average) level and also deprived regions include regions 2،11  and 9 and regions 7, 14, 10 and 13 are at the fifth level. Finally، with regard to the regression model، influential factors in increasing the cultural service development of regions were determined.
