The article concerns the space identity as a dimension of the regional identity. The theoretical
aspect refers to sociological ideas of regional identity. The empirical data come from research
projects which were conducted in the Silesian Province in 2007—2009. The basic conclusion refers
to the fact that the existence of the space identity on the regional level is hard to observe in the heterogenic
Silesian Province. However some aspects of space identity exists on the local level.
