Abstract (in english)
   The Brno massif is a Cadomian magmatic body which was incorporated into the structures of the eastern margin of the Bohemian massif during the Variscan orogeny. Its geological structure was subsequently influenced by tectonic movements connected with Alpine orogeny. This tectonic evolution of the Brno Massif can be relatively well studied using small scale structures. The Cadomian structures are mostly preserved in wall rocks of granodiorites. The East and West granodiorite areas representing slightly different magmatic parts of the Brno massif were brought near along the Metabasite zone during the Variscan orogeny. East vergent thrusting in the first stage was strongly reworked by a sinistral strike slip in the second stage. Devonian sedimenty were incorporated into the structure of the Brno massif. The Alpine orogeny is responsible for the developing of local east vergent post-Cretaceous thrusts and extensional structures filled with Neogene sediments
