The paper provides a brief sociological analysis of two different anthroposocial terms - palanka or varoš (township) and suburbia. The analysis is based on two relevant theoretical sources: two works by a philosopher and an anthropologist, published in the late 1960s. The aim of the paper is to determine whether there are features common to both the palanka and suburbia as different forms of social and spatial organization, the origins and development of which are intimately linked to different temporal, environmental, socio-economic and cultural predispositions. Though the correlation between these two types of urban existence remains questionable at first sight, a concise comparison between the lifestyle in each suggests certain similarities, particularly as regards the individual behaviour and thought patterns found in their ideal type communities.
