Abstract (in english)
   Impressive, bedding-normal, northsouth-striking calcite vein crosscutting Devonian carbonate sequences was exposed during mining operations in the eastern sector of the Čertovy schody Quarry, the Beroun District. Fluid inclusion and stable isotope data provide an evidence that the vein calcite precipitated at 55-84°C, from saline brines of presumably hydrothermal origin. Mn-minerals, chalcedonic silica and minor sulphides associate with calcite in some samples. Field observation reveal that the process of veining was accompanied by an extensive dissolution of enclosing carbonate sequences. This is indicated by a number of corrosive and dissolution features including unusual subvertical, several dozen metres deep cavities that link spatially to the calcite vein. Most of the large dissolution cavities are filled with Tertiary and Upper Cretaceous clastic and clayey sediments.
   Some of the cavities, however, also contain a thick sequence of apparently pre-Upper Cretaceous clayey and sandy deposits that were locally preserved beneath the Cretaceous transgressive cover. We further speculate that many other dissolution features and caves which are common in carbonate sequences elsewhere in the Barrandian basin may have also been, at least in part, of hydrothermal origin
