This article is about the typical Pleistocene landforms of the Hostýnské vrchy Hills (the Outer Western Carphatians) - frost riven cliffs and cryoplanation terraces. These frost riven cliffs are one of the relicts of the periglacial landforms which were originated in the cold phases of the Pleistocene. Besides frost riven cliffs there are many other fossil periglacial landforms (block streams, cryopediment etc.) in this area. The frost riven cliffs and cryoplanation terraces in the Hostýnské vrchy Hills are compared with the same landforms from other parts of the Czech Republic.
