A vlan is a layer broadcast domain. So two devices in the same vlan can see each other without needing the presence of a router.

If you have 2 vlans and a device in each vlan then you need to route between the 2 vlans and for this you either need a router or a L3 switch.

Take vlan 10.

interface vlan 10

ip address

The subnets for vlan 10 are:

A device with address can reach without the need of a router because they are in the same Layer 2 broadcast domain - in other words, in the same vlan.
