Abstract: The Polish countryside has undergone various morphological transformations throughout the history. That was resulting from unusual territorial variability of Poland and different national status of individual historic regions, which were remaining within the structures of neighbouring states and were influenced by their culture, various economic concepts and patterns of rural spatial organization. As a result of that the forms of rural settlement in different historical regions of Poland acquired some specific characteristics.
