Presented work is a contribution to the knowledge of morphostructural situation of the most conserved Tertiary volcano in Slovakia – the Poľana Mts. We made use of several methods of morphostructural analysis of relief when creating the resulting morphostructural map. The Poľana Mts represent erosion-denudationally destroyed polygenic volcano, located in a transitory morphostructural position between the uplifted Slovenské Rudohorie Mts and relatively subsiding Zvolenská kotlina Basin. It consists of two basic partial morphostructural units. The first of them is a centrál depression considered by us a tectonic-erosional type of caldera. Periphery of the volcano is the second unit. The best preserved volcanic morphostructure is located in the Southern slope of the periphery, conserved by a multilayered armour of lava flows. In the northern margin of the morphostructure we identified tectonically conditioned transformation of originally radially centrifugal valley and crest network into a parallel one. A through-like valley of Hučava in the west periphery is determined by a pronounced tectonic disturbance.
