Abstract (in english)
   There are close similarities between the Brunovistulian Terrane and the Istanbul Zone both in the Neoproterozoic and Paleozoic. The geological structure, lithology and geochronology of the Cadomian Brunovistulicum show broad fit with the crystalline basement of the Istanbul Zone. Their Gondwana or Baltica affinity is still poorly constrained and remains a matter of discussion. The Vendian and Cambrian sequences recognized in central Malopolska, Brunovistulian and Moesian terranes correlate well with the Scythian Platform. In the Istanbul Zone the presence of the pre-Ordovician sedimentary sequences has not been confirmed and may be only anticipated. In Paleozoic the best fit was attained in the Devonian-Carboniferous interval.The sedimentary record in the Zonguldak and Istanbul terranes closely compares to the Moravian Karst and Ludmirov facies developments of the Brunovistulian Terrane.
