Abstract: 

The Stara Planina Mountains includes sedimentary rocks of different age, beginning with the Proterozoic and ending with the Plio-Quaternary. Most widespread are Mesozoic rock which are highly fossiliferous. The abundant fossil fauna was used in identifying the presence of all Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous stages. Most instructive sections with the three systems are presented, which in our opinion should be protected. Noteworthy is the traceable continuous transition from one stage to another within a relatively small area.

Й. Митрович-Петрович, В. Радулович. Мезозойские разрезы биостратиграфического и палеонтологического значения в горах Стара-Планины. В горах Стара-Планины обнажаются осадочные породы разного возраста: от протерозоя до плио-кватернера. Широко распространенные мезозойские породы богаты фоссильными останками. Обильная фоссильная фауна была широко использована для установления всех этажей триаса, юры и мела. Найболее инструктивные разрезы этих систем должны быть поставлены под защитой государства. Замечательные постепенные переходы одного этажа в другой наблюдаются в относительно небольших участках.
