Landscape as cultus agri vs cultus animi

The article presents an interpretation of cultural landscape using three related concepts place, human being, language, which refer to the original meaning of the notion of cultura. Drawing on the results of field studies carried out with a group of Ukrainian students and researchers during a Magurycz Association camp in August 2007 in Grab and Cichania in the Low Beskid region Poland, the author tries to answer the question of when and how land cultivation becomes cultivation of the soul or, in other words, when and why we become part of a cultural landscape.
