A detailed geomorphological analysis of terraces within this part of the valley is submitted in the article. Only denudated relics of these terraces occur in the studied section of the valley. Comparison to the terrace system of the Vltava River was exerted for the arrangement of the Sázava terraces into the stratigraphical chronology. The terraces of the groups IIIA (Günz 2) up to VII (Würm) have been identified in the examined part of the Sázava valley.
