The paper deals with an evaluation of geography by Czech geographers themselves. In the spring of 2007, a survey was conducted among 40 geographers from Czech universities. The research sought to discover how Czech geographers at various universities think of their field and what they hope to achieve for it, within the first decade of the 21st century. Each segment of the questionnaire was compared with the results of similar Polish research published some years ago. The answers of Czech geographers were similar to their Polish colleagues and it is evident that the results are significant in spite of a few respondents.
