Abstract:

Living in the Suburbia: The Case Study of Stupava (the Hinterland of Bratislava, Slovakia). What is the nature of suburban localities and who are their inhabitants? What is the motivation of people to move beyond the city edge? Is it a phenomenon of segregated and socially homogeneous “bedrooms” with no social connections which is emerging in the hinterland of Bratislava? When trying to answer these basic questions we often come across stereotyped perceptions therefore this paper tries to find answers by means of the Stupava case study which represents a typical suburban area. Despite the fact that suburbanization drew the attention from the expert and social perspectives, more detailed probes analysing the daily routines of inhabitants of suburbs are absent. Our paper tries to offer a deeper insight into the life of suburban inhabitants and uncover their motivations, life strategies and the character of social anchoring in their new home. Sociológia 2016, Vol. 48 (No. 2: 139-171)
