Search for: [Abstract = "Transformations occurring in rural areas are caused by a variety of factors of internal \(arising directly from conditions of a particular area\) or external \(independent of analyzed area\) nature. These evoke pronounced changes in rural landscape, including its basic element, the village. Varied effects of transformation are visible in the village’s image and unfortunately, they are most often negative. As an aftermath, one observes obliteration of the place’s tradition, distinctiveness and regional specificity of rural areas. Taking action for rural renewal or revitalization requires a series of research and analysis to identify sources of the problems occurring in the village. Regarding diagnosis for village state, a special emphasis is put upon territorial, natural and social conditions. In turn, the process of developing recovery strategy, its initiation and implementation necessarily requires involvement of local community. Identification of rural landscape distinguishing features in the analysis procedure serves to clarify the vision for the development of a given area. Distinguishing marks of the rural landscape can become the basis or inspiration in developing the concept of revitalization, at the same time preserving village’s historical assets. The article presents the above mentioned issues and considers the differences between rural renewal and revitalization. Discussion is based upon data acquired by the means of conducted analysis concerning two villages located in the Opolskie Voivodeship\: Złotogłowice and Różyna."]
