Abstract (in english)
   This paper aims to present the evidence for the sequence of convergences which produced the present configuration of crustal blocks in Central Europe, account for the series of oceanic openings and closures which caused them, and explain the possible mechanisms controlling the repeated rifting of crustal blocks from the Palaeozoic Gondwana margin. The SW margin of the East European Craton, the Trans-European Suture Zone (TESZ) is one of the most prominent crustal features of Europe, and is marked by a major geophysical anomaly, separating the strongly magnetized East European Craton from the contrastingly weakly magnetized crustal blocks to the SW. Despite being everywhere concealed beneath thick sedimentary cover, it is traceable from the Black Sea coast of Romania to the mouth of the River Oder on the Baltic Sea, and thence westwards passing S of Denmark.
