Abstract (in english)
   This paper reviews the Cenozoic evolution of the Carpathian orogen and focuses on critical data for crustal events, which are the response to the subduction of the remnant Carpathian Flysch Basin (rCFB), the remaining large oceanic tract left in front of the Alpine-Carpathian orogen. Much debated problems include driving forces, crustal deformation events and assessment of critical data for models. Described driving forces for the orogen were general Africa - Europe convergence, northwestward and northward advance of Apulia (Adria), subduction rollback in the rCFB area, gentle collision and oceanic slab break-off at the end of subduction, and lateral extrusion in the Eastern Alps. Other boundary conditions of the orogen were high strength of both Bohemian Massif and Moesian Platform.
   Described deformation events comprise Paleogene - early Early Miocene regional contraction and strike-slip faulting, late Early Miocene - Middle Miocene shortening in the front, strike-slip faulting along sides and hinterland extension in the hinterland of both ALCAPA and Tisza-Dacia parts of the orogen, late Badenian -Sarmatian regional extension with exception of few frontal areas with contraction, Late Miocene transitional period from earlier extension to later basin inversion and Pliocene - Quaternary regional basin inversion. Critical data include seismic, in situ stress, magnetic, conductivity, heat flow, volcanic, facial correlation, paleomagnetic, paleostress and fault activity data and data on deposition in foredeep, foreland, fore-arc, retroarc and hinterland basins
