Abstract The spatial-temporal landscape dynamics through the Eemian interglacial (including preceding and succeeding transitional phases) have been examined along a latitudinal transect (50–55 °N). Three Eemian pollen diagrams are presented. As follows from comparison of the data from Central and Eastern Europe, changes of environment and climate became more contrasting from west to east. At the same time, the main phases in the evolution of vegetation appear to be similar throughout the latitudinal belt. The interglacial optimum was characterised by an essential similarity of vegetation all over the region investigated. Plant communities of the cooler intervals (at the beginning and closer to the end of the interglacial) differed noticeably from west to east. Significant contrasts in environmental and climatic fluctuations mark the Saalian/Eemian boundary (transition from MIS 6 to MIS 5e). Vegetation dynamics at this boundary resemble those detected at the transition from Weichselian to Holocene (Alleröd and Younger Dryas).
