Abstract (in english)
   This paper provides evidence of the very varied denudation topography that had developed in the Sudetic Foreland by the end of the Palaeogene and which has survived up to the present day because of partial burial by Neogene sediments. The Sudetic Foreland comprised different landscape units and the range of relative relief within it may have been up to 600 m; 150-200 m seems to be a figure typical for the mid-Tertiary. This stands in apparent contrast to the widely held opinion that the landscape subjected to the Neogene uplift represented a planation surface. It is argued that much of the present-day topography of Central European uplands and mountains, including the adjacent Sudetes, may be inherited from the Early Cenozoic. In many cases there is generally no need to invoke complicated uplift histories, for which scarce independent geological evidence exists, to explain the origin of landsurfaces
