National culture is usually defined by indicating the material and spiritual elements handed over from generation to generation. This research, which has been conducted for many years, has produced numerous definitions of the notion of culture as well as a classification of cultures. The typology of cultures, developed on the basis of certain criteria, is a valuable source of knowledge about the diversity of nations. The changes that are currently occurring raise the question of the future of national cultures. The consequences of ubiquitous globalization can be observed in every field. The cultural dimension is not indifferent towards the globalization process, either. Such factors as symbols, customs, religions, and stereotypes, which testify to the multicultural nature of the modern world, can remain unchanged by the predominating tendencies, but it is likely that they will gradually become marginalized or even eliminated. In the light of the above doubts, various concepts and visions have emerged, concerning the path modern societies are walking nowadays. While they are a valuable object of reflection, the nearest future will bring the final answer to the question of whether we are witnessing the birth of a global culture, or rather the strengthening of national cultural distinctiveness and identity.
