Abstract: The possibility of developing the touristic-recreational function using elements of cultural heritage, natural and landscape conditions was described based on an example of a few villages of Lower Silesia. The villages may soon change their image, be "discovered" by people looking for new ways of life through, among others, development of tourism in rural areas, and appreciated by people looking for places for recreation in rural landscape and close to historical monuments. Economic situation, engagement of local communities, authorities and proper spatial management policy have a big influence on the present con-dition of buildings in rural areas, new investments and the protection of numerous valuable architectonic monuments. Many examples confirm that the skill of using the natural assets, elements of national heritage combined with good organisation gives possibilities to deve-lop, among others, the touristic-recreational function of rural areas. Increased tourism in rural areas will lead to the creation of new lodging facilities, gastronomic and commercial services. It will also create the need to improve the sanitary and health conditions in rural settlements improving their aesthetics and infrastructure.
