The transformations that occur in rural areas are intended to increase the diversity of the countryside by extending the previously performed functions, both economic and social. This increases the importance of entrepreneurship among rural residents to cope with quite difficult facts, which had an undeniable impact on the quality of life. The aim of the study is to evaluate the entrepreneurship of the rural residents in comparison with living in cities. We have taken into account as the entrepreneurial attitudes as entrepreneurial actions. The important area of the analysis was the assessment of the relationship between these two aspects of entrepreneurship. The conducted studies have shown, that the entrepreneurial potential of the rural population in Poland is relatively high. In these terms, from the point of view of both the entrepreneurial attitudes and actions, residents of the rural areas are not falling behind the residents of cities. At the same time, entrepreneurial activities undertaken by them, remain in relation to their entrepreneurial attitude.
