Geography is a science developed as a scientific branch studying immediate environment of the human society. Geography always studied the geographical milieu of the human society. The author analyses environmental studies of Czech geographers in the period 1945-1985. Czech geographers substantially contributed to the study of protection and formation of the environment in the Czech Socialist republic in the above mentioned period. Many important papers were published. But there are still further possibilities to contribute to the protection and formation of the optimal environment of the socialist society.
