In this article, in addition to identifying the areas affected by intensive urbanization of space, an attempt has been made to identify the problems, benefits and threats, related to the formation of important natural structures for the OMW, and mainly the ecological network of the Warsaw Metropolitan Area, generated by the development of spontaneous urbanization. Within the OMW, the main threat to natural space is spontaneous urbanization. Since 2005, the northern part of the OMW has been distinguished by the particular intensity of urbanized land development, while in 2000-2004 it was mainly areas south of Warsaw.
