Abstract (in english)
   The article deals with an analysis of the geodynamic development in the contact zone between the Bohemian Massif, the West Carpathians, the East Alps and the north-western parts of the Pannonian Basin during the period when the Carpathian orogen, part of the larger Alpine-Carpathian orogen finally shaped the West Carpathians (area north of Central Hungarian Line), and led to a short-lasting collision when the Carpathian contacted the passive margin of the European Platform (e.g. Royden and Baldi, 1988). The final results of the numerous orogenic processes that took place during that period are embraced and fixed in the geological and geophysical picture of this area.
   Special attention is paid to the results of the geological and geophysical survey in the Vienna Basin, Danube Basin, Povážský Inovec Mts., Malé Karpaty Mts., in the western part of the Pannonian Basin and eastern part of the Alps, which provide valuable information for indirect tracing of complexes in composition and degree of metamorphosis similar to Penninic rocks (Leško and Varga, 1980; Leško et al., 1988; Šutora et al. 1988; Pospíšil et al., 1989; Rakús et al., IGCP 198 Series, 1990; Tollmann 1990; Gnojek et al., 1991; Plašienka et al., 1995). With reference to Leško et al. (1988) and Plašienka (1995), some recent results are represented that can help to clarify the process the result of which is "a tectonic window (IW) of the Carpathian Penninic units in the environment of Austroalpine nappes (the Tatric and- "Sub-Tatric") as unique exposure in the Carpathians"
