The features of Ukrainian-Polish cross-border cooperation realized within the framework of collaboration between the border regions of the neighbouring countries, displayed in different forms, have been considered in the article. The influence of transborder cooperation on functioning of the Ukrainian-Polish state border – in particular, strengthening of its contact function – has been analysed. The components of the Euroregions operation that include border territories of Poland and Ukraine have been investigated. As one of substantial challenges at the present stage the necessity of transport infrastructure improvement should be examined.
