Abstract (in english)
   The early Variscan phase of the evolution of Brunovistulian terrane was characterized by the formation of Devonian extensional basins and WPA volcanic activity. The compressive phase is recorded in synorogenic flysch sedimentation, which shows a distinct polarity. The oldest flysch (Protivanov and Andelska Hora Fm.) contains clastic micas from early Paleozoic crystalline rocks that are assumed to be derived either from an active Brunovistulian margin, now covered by the Lugodanubian nappes, or from the terranes of Armorican affinity. At the beginning of the Namurian the development of the Moravo-Silesian late Paleozoic basin was terminated by coal-bearing paralic and limnic sediments. The progressive Carboniferous stacking of nappes and their impingement on the Laurussian foreland led to crustal thickening and shortening. The Devonian preorogenic and Carboniferous synorogenic sedimentation bears close similarity to the Rhenohercynian Zone of Germany.
