This allows to observe how theoretical investment attractiveness of particular provinces is consistent with actual choices and decisions of foreign investors to undertake economic activities in a given Polish province. For better describe of the context of this issue, in the first part of the study there are presented data on the movement of capital in the form of FDI in the modern world and the size of the influx of them to Poland in recent years.
