The paper, based on material consisting of minor place-names from the territory of Bohemia, provides an overview of the formation of adjectives from toponyms. A great deal of attention is devoted especially to the formation from reduced forms of toponyms, and - on the other hand - to the derivation by extended forms of the suffix -sky, i.e. -ovsky, -ansky, -ensky, -acky and -ecky. Although the absolute majority of detoponymic adjectives are formed using the suffix -sky (and its variants), also other suffixes - -ovy, -ny and -ni – are analysed in the article.
