A detailed study of the sedimentary structures of the Požáry Formation has been carried out at two important sections in the Prague Basin - Požáry 1 Quarry near Praha-Řeporyje and the Kosov Quarry near Beroun. There is a slight difference in the facies character. The Kosov Quarry represents a deeper depositional environment if compared to the Požáry Quarry and the source of shallow-water bioclastic material was more distant and the coarse-grained bioclastic limestone facies are thus more rare here.
