The study deals with the idea of the landscape synthesis, which has determined the making of Slovak geography for many years. The “spiritus movens” of the activities around this idea was academician Emil Mazúr. His not lived 80th birthday offers the opportunity to remember his legacy. The study outlines the key problem of the landscape synthesis, the concept of landscape. It is described as an abstract as well as a concrete concept and in its applied form as the concept of the landscape plan. The study also briefly describes the destiny of the idea of the landscape synthesis. It emerged in the first half of the 20th century and soon became the dominant idea of Slovak geography. It was also the period when the international co-operation organized around the group of scientists pursuing the idea of the landscape synthesis. Finally, also the disappearance and the process of destruction of the landscape synthesis by the end of the 20th century are described.
