The article presents the impact of urbanization processes, associated with the development of Warsaw, on changes taking place in rural areas in districts around Warsaw. The analysis covered the districts of Legionowo, Minsk, Otwock, Piaseczyn, Pruszkow, Warsaw West and Wołomin. The study found a steady trend in the counties adjacent to the capital of decreasing the area of land used for agriculture in favor of an increase in urbanized and built-up areas.
