The proposed article focuses on minority languages in Poland in the context of its membership in the European Union. There are a few aspects to the issue of languages of ethnic minorities residing in Poland. They can be described in ethno- and sociolinguistic, historical and statistical respects. They can be characterized in terms of their legal situation. Finally, their present diffusion and presence in public life as well as conditions of development may be examined. Possible inconsistencies with international regulations concerning minority rights are identified.
