The article deals with the problem of intensive and often uncontrolled expansion of villages situated close to large cities, putting special emphasis on changes that occur in the rural landscape and social consequences of suburbanisation. Villages situated around large cities have been presented as separate settlement units whose specificity is largely determined by their trans-border character. The motive for launching research into the problem was the need to expand the scope of characteristics of the population of immigrants from large cities. The article concentrates on the profile of new residents of villages situated in metropolitan areas and the related issue of shuttle migration. An attempt at describing the phenomenon of suburban communities forms the final part of the research project.
