Abstract (in English)

The problems of the landscape protections become recently more important not only in Poland but also in Europe and in the whole world. This situation is connected with the increased understanding of the questions of the human heritage. This is also connected with the understanding of importance of the space protection, both, the nature and culture areas. The standpoint of the ICOMOS in the case of the protection of the cultural heritage, especially the cultural landscape protection, has the great meaning in the popularization of this idea. The areas of the cultural landscape are recently more often registered as the world heritage on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites List. The area of the pilgrim landscape of the complex in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska in Poland, which was registered in 1999, is one example of decision in the last few years. The landscape protection is also very important for the European Council. This problem has been undertaken by the European Landscape Convention, which was signed by eighteen European countries in October 2000 year.
