Abstract (in english)
   South-north trending subsidence migration of small basement blocks could be determined for the time span between the deposition of reef limestones and the onset of flysch and molasse development (Frasnian-Upper Viséan). In concentrates on a small area (5 x 4 km) situated in the southern part of the Moravian Karst. This process is combined with northward tilting of the southern blocka and with gravitational sliding deformation of distinctly layered sediments of NNE vergency. The deformation is disharmonic by its nature. The process took place, for its major part, prior to the molasse sedimentation of the Myslejovice Formation. Subsequent tectonic structures, locally accompanied by cleavage, display E or W vergency
