Abstract (in english)
   In the Pleistocene the summit parts of the Bohemian Massif were modified and remodelled by different periglacial processes in cold environment. The geomorphological effect of these processes was controlled by the altitude above sea level and local morphological as well as lithological conditions. The lowering of the ground surface of the erosional flats and broad watershed ridges as remnants of planation surfaces due to gelifluction, sheet wash and wind erosion are estimated in most cases not to have exceeded 5-10 m. Mainly in many mountain areas cryoplanation summit flats with tors are common. The remodelling of the older surface due to cryoplanation was considerable there. The lowering of the ground surface was locally differentiated and around tors attains 10-15 m, on favourable places as much as 20 m.
