The authors present a short report on the proceedings of the XIth Congress of Czechoslovak Geographers held in Olomouc, Moravia, from June 30th to July 4th 1969. The original date of the congress hat to be postponed because the entry of armies into the Czechoslovakia made it impossible for technical reasons to arrange it in time. The geographers from abroad were not present on this congress; however 250 geographers from Czechoslovakia were present and more than 30 scientific reports were read. The programme included two excursions - one in the area of Osoblaha, the other in the Rychlebské Mountains (the pleistocene continental glaciation), North-Western Moravia. The congress was also acquinted with the fact that the Czechoslovak Geographical Society has become a federal institution divided into the Czech Geographical Society (Prague) and the Slovak Geographical Society (Bratislava). The next congress of the Czech geographers will take place in 1972 in České Budějovice, Southern Bohemia.
