The author deals with a new phenomenon in Central and Eastern Europe after the fall of communism – the gated community. This term refers to a residential area with at least two buildings, separated from the surrounding area by a physical barrier and accessible only to residents. The emergence of gated communities is a consequence of residential segregation of the inhabitants as one of the processes in a post-socialist city. The text offers a brief overview of the studies on these settlements abroad concerning their history, the factors and circumstances of their origin, their forms and impact. The author takes note of the situation in Central Europe and pays attention to the research that has been dealing with the issue in the region. The last part of the study deals with the phenomenon of gated communities in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.
