The author describes surface and undersurface landforms in the Čecher Hill (the Outer Western (Flysch) Carpathians) and outlines their origin and development. The main part of the article focuses on periglacial and pseudokarst (above all a pseudokarst cave in the Čecher Hill) landforms in this area. It also describes periglacial processes in the Pleistocene and the processes of humid character in the Holocene, which formed these landforms. The author takes notice of the relationship between landforms and geological conditions in the area.
