Description This paper aims to encourage reflections and debates on changing the conception of geographical education in the Czech curriculum. The basis for this reflection are conducted surveys in which we have identified, with the help of Catling's typology, a type of conception that prevail in the Czech curriculum documents and among future geography teachers. The required idea of geographical thinking supported by the International Charter on Geographical Education and current international trends is not sufficiently reflected in the curriculum documents as well as in statements of future geography teachers. The survey has shown that the factual and encyclopedic conception of teaching geography is so deeply embedded in curriculum documents as well as in the minds of students that there is an apparent space for the development of geographical thinking.
