This article aims to outline the actual situation in the rural-urban relationship by showing how the two key elements interact with each other and by highlighting the main dysfunctions resulting from the interplay of the two entities in terms of the dispute over the land fund they need. The purpose of this study is to highlight types of connection established between villages and towns- specific symbols for urban on one side and rural on the other-thus explaining the way the entities subjected or not to the continuous process of development, starting from economical and social level changes which the new urban-rural relation requires. By determining the impact that urbanization process has on agricultural land fund, the suitable environment for openness and adaptation to modern society requirements can be created. In the same time, this complex process involves a clear shaping and the completion of indispensable connections between rural and urban areas.
