This paper presents results of selected geomorphological studies published originally in Poland in the last decade and attempts to show the extent to which they complement or diverge from research carried out in the Czechia. It focuses on long-term landform evolution, the role of planation and differential tectonics, glacial and periglacial processes and identifies the scope for joint research efforts, which ultimately may lead towards a comprehensive, synthetic view of geomorphic evolution of the whole mountain range.
