Purpose: This paper is an attempt to identify the attitudes of young people towards physical culture and determine the types of attitudes towards the studied reality.
Methods:The research included 1st (16 y.o.) and 3rd grade (18 y.o.) students from 3 types of secondary schools in Kraków. Diagnostic survey was selected as the research method.
Results:The studied students of secondary schools in Kraków declare positive attitudes towards physical culture, i.e. they mostly present the full and the selective types of attitude. The least desired attitude towards the studied reality was observed among fine arts secondary school students, who showed the elements characteristic of the full and the selective types most seldom.
Conclusions:The positive attitude towards physical culture approved and applied by most of the studied students serves as an antidote for the civilisation threats of the present day.
