Abstract (in english)
   The paleostress analysis was applied at 16 sites in the Mesozoic limestones, which are tectonically incorporated into the Cretaceous and the Paleogene strata on the front of the West Carpathian flysch nappes (South Moravia, Czech Republic). 25 solutions were obtained. These solutions can be divided into two groups. The first group represents the paleostress field with predominantly NW-SE compression and NE-SW extension connected with the Early Neogene movements of the Ždánice Nappe. The variability of the acceptable maximum compression axes can be explained by rotation of individual tectonic slices of the Ždánice Nappe during its tectonic transport. The second group of solutions represents the paleostress field with NE-SW compression and NW-SE extension.

   The paleostress analysis was applied at 16 sites in the Mesozoic limestones, which are tectonically incorporate into the Cretaceous and the Paleogene strata on the front of the Western Carpathian Flysch nappes (South Moravia, Czech Republic). 25 solutions were obtained. These solutions can be divided into two groups. First group represents the paleostress field with predominantly NW-SE compression and NE-SW extension connected with the Early Neogene movements of the Ždánice nappe. The azimuth of eigenvector of acceptable compression axes varies from 97 up to 167. This variability can be explained by rotation of individual tectonic slices of the Ždánice nappe during the movement this nappe. The different tectonic scales rotated probably in different sense (anticlockwise rotation in the case of some scales, clockwise rotation in the case of other scales). Second group of solutions represents the paleostress field with NE-SW compression and NW-SE extension.
