Multiculturalism has seemed an important term for ethnology for quite a long time. Alongside such notions as, for example, globalization, hybridism and transculturalism, it belongs to those terms which best describe the specificity of contemporary culture. At the same time, from the moment when cultural anthropology began exploring more closely the urban interior, multiculturalism became one of the most important features describing the nature of city culture. Within the field of the anthropology of cities many different theories and discourses of multiculturalism are germinating. Social diversity, cultural strangeness or the heterogeneity of the city style of life all are finding their own 'special' anthropological interpretations. This essay focuses most of all on the presentation of various ethnological approaches to the issue of multiculturalism viewed in the light of the anthropology of cities. It points to the ambiguity of the issue of multiculturalism, which appears as one of the most distinctive features of metropolitan communities.
