Abstract:

A sense of security is fundamental to our existence. An understanding of how various aspects of our lives relate to this basic need can shape our understanding of what it means to feel safe, and identify ways to increase the perceived security of urban residents. Perceived security constitutes a prerequisite for a quality lifestyle. Psychological security of city dwellers is a synthesis of the objective impact of the city’s features and the residents’ subjective assessment of many aspects of their habitat. The physical environment is one of the key indicators of whether the urban environment is suitable for living. Even without people being aware of it, the urban environment constantly affects perception, cognition, and emotion. Therefore, the city perception and the affective reactions it elicits should not be considered separately.

Keywords:

security; city residents; perception of security; habitat.
