In hereby study, a cultural sector was distinguished from industries of the culture and creative industries, specially taking into account the definition of these notions. On the basis of studies of the Institute for Structural Research in Warsaw, a sector of creative industries in Poland was presented. An attempt to determine the influence of creative industries on the social-economic development of the region was also made. It was pointed that the culture and creative industries drawing from it contribute to an increase in endogenous ability of the region to react to changes occurring under the influence of exogenous factors.
