The structural scheme of Europe represents the situation of Slovakia (the Carpathians and the Pannonian Basin) in the context of the geological building of the whole continent. It combines the basic tectonic elements with some elements of the geological building (by dissection of the sedimentary cover) of the platforms by age. Slovakia is situated in the northern branch of the alpid belt with orogenic development in the Mesozoic and Tertiary eras. This belt has developed on the ruins of the Caledonian or Variscan orogenic belt in the southern part of the European continent. Part of these older orogens are included into the alpine zone and represent part of its geological building.
