Abstract (in english)
   The paper is concentrated on evidence for three new concepts, which were introduced by the authors since the beginning of 1990s: 1/horizontal tectonic rotation in Moravia based on evidence in sedimentology, paleobiology, structural geology and paleomagnetism; 2/ Middle Devonian closing of Rheic ocean passages and opening of Rhenish passages - with emphasis on different tectonic setting of Early and Late Variscan collisions; 3/ significant role of partioning in this huge transcurrent zone between Gondwana and Laurussia (Baltica) - with rotation of domains, origin and extinction of rifts and arcs.
