Abstract (in english)
   All major architectonical elements of the foreland basins are conventionally considered to accumulate due to flexural subsidence of the foreland plate with typical regional orogenward thickening on basinal scale. The distinctive geometry of the Lower Badenian deposits reflects that flexural subsidence was not the major generator of accommodation space formation. Deposits are located in the central parts of the basin in some distance both from the passive and active basin margins. Areas with their maximum thickness are situated in the axis of the basin forming almost symmetric depression with SSW-NNE orientation. Lithofacies study allows us to distinct 15 lithofacies and 4 facies associations/depositional environments (i.e. coarse-grained deltas, coastal environment, lagoonal deposits and basinal/shelf deposits). Two of depositional environments strongly dominate. The coarse-grained deltas are the first one. The second dominant depositional environment is the basinal one.
