Abstract: 

The Mid-Cretaceos tectonic structure of Southwest Bulgaria consists of the paraautochthonous Strouma Superunit and the allochthonous Morava Superunit. Five sections represent excellent exposures of unique tectonic features. They should be protected by the State, and conserved in a manner suitable for preservation as well as for educational and scientific purposes.

Среднемеловое тектоническое строение Юго-западной Болгарии состоит из параатохтонной Струмской единицы и аллохтонной Моравской единицы. Пять разрезов выявляют уникальные тектонические особенности. Они должны быть поставлены под защитой Государства, и консервированы таким способом чтобы обеспечить их сохранение для научных исследований и демонстраций с учебной целью.
