Major economic, natural and social shocks always bring new insights to regions as well, which call for new directions for development activities and related actions. The Covid-19 epidemic broke out, swept across the world in 2019, and has radically transformed almost every aspect of life. The change in meaning caused by the Covid-19 has also affected the rhetoric of countries and their role in the European Union. Isolationist processes have slowed down and fragmented integration into the EU. In this challenging period, we again witness a shift in the role of rural space (shelter, safe place) and its changing interpretation and also the reversal of negative connotations associated with the countryside: loneliness, self-sufficiency, distance. Therefore, the study focuses on the factors that have the potential to further enhance these positive values, and do not increase the resilience of rural areas.
