The Sava is the longest river in Slovenia, a right tributary of the Danube river. It flows 221 km (137 mi) through the country and along its border with Croatia.
The Sava River rises in the Julian Alps near the Slovenia-Austria border, where it begins with the Sava Dolinka and the Sava Bohinjka, and flows into the Danube in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. The river connects four countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia) and three national capitals (Ljubljana, Zagreb, and Belgrad).
Along its total length of 944 km (586 mi) and a total catchment area of 97,713 square km (37,727 square mi), the river forms the northern border of the Balkan Peninsula and the southern edge of the Pannonian Plain.
