Abstract (in english)
   The dynamics of block-type slope movements on travertine hills of Spiš Region in eastern Slovakia have been studied by means of fissure monitoring and physical photoplastic models. A new interpretation of the investigated deformations is given. The models show the process in which different block structures of the marginal zones of the hills originate as the effect of inclination in the underlying beds of flysh strata. It is either a fan-like structure of towering blocks in the process of topplong like that found at the eastern slope of dreveník Hill or block towers slipping at their base while toppling inwards, like those at the opposite slopes of the same hill. Monitoring of the Spiš Castle rock and masoury fissures provides present rates of the movements and/or data about stable hill sections showing present deformations in a phase of a long-term deformation process which can be studied in physical models successfully
