The identity of the individual is constructed in cultural references. This process becomes even more complex, when occurring in the multicultural area. As a result, the specificity of identities is influenced by diverse identifications taking place with reference to objects of own and different cultures. A sense of cultural safety plays an important role in this process, not only guaranteeing the certainty of existence and development of the national identity of individuals and cultural community, but it also allows – to a different degree – to open one self to different cultures.
