In 2003, Kechris, Pestov and Todorcevic showed that the structure of certain separable metric spaces--called ultrahomogeneous--is closely related to the combinatorial behavior of the class of their finite metric spaces. The purpose of the present paper is to explore different aspects of this connection.
