Abstract

The article refers to some phenomena and processes taking place within the area affected by Gdynia. Change in political conditions in 1989 created a new favorable conditions for the management of land traditionally belonging to the suburban area. Traditional ties between the suburban villagers and their employment markets in the cities became looser. Contemporary transformations of rural areas within the zones affected by cities, including Gdynia, take place within many spheres of life and human activity. They affect the multifunctionality of rural areas. In the villages treated with these processes intensity of building, location of economic enterprises, contacts with urban forms of production and service activities increase. These phenomena contribute to blurring the differences in conditions and lifestyles of urban and suburban areas.


Key words: suburban area, multifunctionality, agglomeration, transactors, suburbanization, Kosakowo Municipality
