Rural areas have a number of unique features which make it noticeably different from urban areas. This fact is also shown by the presence of certain processes. Furthermore, not only in urban areas but also in rural ones relevant economic changes have taken place in the last few decades, which fact perfectly reflects that is a current issue nowadays. As a result of the above mentioned processes rural areas must face new challenges which have definitely affected the functions of such areas. It can be concluded that the generally revaluated social capital has special significance in reference to rural areas. Revaluation of social capital is perfectly demonstrated by the rapidly and constantly growing amount of papers of social work in the field. This subject matter was mainly dealt with by sociology, but it has already become one of the most important issues targeted and examined by economics as well. Closely connected to the latter field, we cannot ignore spatial dimensions of social capital for which matter regional science also has responded. While I primarily focus on a special segment of space, in my work, I give a brief overview of the connection between social capital and spatiality by relying on and reviewing academic literature.
