Wierszyna, a village in Siberia, is a place where voluntary Polish immigrants arrived at the beginning of the 20th century. The village has recently become a research area of many social anthropologists, sociologists and linguists who are afraid that due to the process of globalization and decrease of territorial and social isolation of Siberian communities, it is bound to loose its character.The article makes an attempt to prove that Polish scholars show peculiar interest in the Wierszyna phenomenon. It seems that attention of anthropologists who happen to be Poles focuses primarily not on Wierszyna exotic character but on its cultural similarity to the Polish background. They instinctively seek Polish cultural elements, which have persisted in the village and it occasionally leads to mistaken interpretations and false assumption.
