Morava River

Morava River

Velika Morava River flows through the most fertile and the most densely populated area of the central Serbia – the Pomoravlje area. The Morava River forms together with the West Morava River the longest river of Serbia. North Morava River of the total length of 246 kilometers flows through the Central Serbia. The Velika /Great/ Morava is created by the confluence of the Južna Morava /Southern Morava/ and the Zapadna Morava /Western Morava/ passing through the small town of Stalać, a major railway junction in Central Serbia. Zapadna Morava /West Morava/ of the total length of 308 km, including the Golijska Moravica River, originates by the town of Požega from the confluence of Golijska Reka and Đetinja Rivers. The valley of Zapadna Morava is composite – it flows through four ravines and the stunning Ovčar-Kablar Gorge.

From Stalać to its confluence with the Danube River northeast of Smederevo, the Velika Morava River is 185 km long. With its longer branch, the Zapadna Morava, it is 493 km long what makes Velika Morava the longest river of Serbia. The Ibar-Zapadna Morava-Velika Morava system forms a 550 km long river system which is the longest in the Balkans. Larger tributaries of Velika Morava River are Crnica, Ravanica and Resava Rivers on its right side and Lugomir, Belica, Lepenica and Jasenica River on its left side. Navigating Morava one can see the last remained ferries, old watermills, medieval monasteries and numerous hidden historical places featuring preserved tradition.
