Purpose. This study focuses on the analysis of structures and kinematics of the western closure of the Horlovka anticline to present a general development mechanism and to determine whether the structural complexity of the study area is consistent with a single regional stress field or not. Methodology. The kinematic and structural data available for the study zone have been studied. Further, fault data, including both the fault plane and slickenline orientations, and the sense of movement, have been studied by the kinematic analysis method of O.
