Geodynamical phenomena were mapped in the vicinity of ruins of the castle Trosky. The mapped area is limited to a solid body of sandstone block, which is preserved around the volcanic pipe of the Trosky. Attention was mainly paid to landslides and to their epipheomenons, as well as to rock falls and to pseudokarst forms. SE from the Trosky castle a pseudokarst cave Sklepy is situated, in which continous measurements of slow movements have been running. The result of mapping are maps of stability conditions in the scale 1 : 10,000.
