Abstract (in english)
   The western boundary of the Moravo-Silesian complex lies west of the Dobra gneiss occurrences based on the assumption that the Dobra gneiss is conform to the Bíteš gneiss and the Drosendorf formation is conform to both the Vranov-Olešnice formation and the Vratenín formation. The Bíteš nappe (Bíteš/Dobra gneiss and Drosendort formation) as the uppermost tectonic unit of the Moravo-Silesian nappe complex is partly back-thrusted in the western limb of the Waldviertel synform and trapped towards west by the units of the Moldanubian complex. Its continuation below the Molda-nubian complex towards west might be expected in the depth. The Moldanubian complex in the Waldviertel area comprises the Gföhl, Raabs and Ostrong units. The Gföhl unit consists of granulite and Gföhl gneiss and their specific amphibolite wrappers.
   A complex of another HT/HP metamorphic rocks with considerable mafic portions is comprehended within the Raabs unit which in the Wachau region includes the Hinterhaus marble and calc silicate gneiss. The Ostrong unit is composed of HT/LP metamorphic rocks, mainly migmatitic cordierite gneisses of the Monotonous group
