The article deals with the problems of economic stimulation and development of marginal villages in the situation of Poland's membership of the European Union and the need to adjust the country's economy to the requirements of the economy based on knowledge. In confrontation with the global market and new economic conditions the situation of such villages seems to be very difficult. Their failure to adjust to the new trends is evident in many spheres. The article presents the preliminary results of a social quasi-experiment launched to test the possibility of adjusting marginal villages to the new trends through their transformation into thematic villages.
