I live in central London. I now live in Bayswater just to the north of Hyde Park. Before that I lived down the road in Marble Arch. Before that I lived in Bloomsbury.

For me it's the reverse. I live within City limits, but as Stockholmers think I'm way out in the suburbs.
Taken from the tallest building in Stockholm (which is in my suburb) looking towards the Inner City on the horizon.

I live within the city limit's, but it really is in the suburbs(especially when considering that there is mountains betwine me and downtown, or Sentrum as we call it.)

I live practicaly in the biggest suburb of Bratislava (population 426,000) called Petržalka (population 114,000), but the city is available by bus faster than to many of people living in a downtown

In a few years, it will be a downtown.

For Europe you need a third option IMO...


I do live in a primarily residential part of town some 5km away from the center of Copenhagen - but it isn't suburbs yet - so with the two options I'll vote downtown.. although it technically isn't.

^ You mean Metro? I agree that should have been an option.

Metro = city & suburbs...

@D - depending on how you count things it's either city or suburb. Going my the "american" standard, it'd be a suburb. Going by a more Scandinavian standard it'd be the City, yes?
IMO there's several ways of looking at it, all make sense as long as your clear about what you mean when you say city/suburb. My hood is within City limits, but very (euro)suburban in character and surrounded on all sides by either freeways and/or forests. We all consider it a suburb and say we're "going in to the city" (and sometimes even use the word "city", which means downtown in Stockholm), and we see nothing strange about at the same time being part of the municipality of Stockholm.
