Summary/Abstract: The article is an attempt to look at the problem of colonialism of Galicia as a topic that has been masked by the myth of the region, which is too specific to describe it in terms of colonial dependency. This point of view is widespread also in postcolonial studies. The author of this article believes that the basis of this opinion is not literature, which is responsible for its strengthening, but the narratives of the former imperial Habsburg monarchy.
