Part of Northern Bohemia was covered on several occasions by a continental ice sheet during the Pleistocene. This article provides a review of important studies on the glacial history of northern Bohemia and indicates the present state of knowledge of the extent and stratigraphy of glacial sediments. The relationship of glacigenic and other Pleistocene sediments, mainly the terrace system of the Ploučnice River (the basin of which was directly affected by the continental ice sheet) is also discussed. Finally, the author refers to some problems to be solved.
