The contribution presents the basic geographical characteristic of the border region between the Czech Republic, Poland and Germany called Trojzemí. It gives information about its definition, size, main problems, formation and about the programme of its common development. Particular attention is paid not only to the causes and consequences of the devastation of the environment, but also to proposals and plans for its elimination.
