  1. Vltava(ProperNoun)

    a major river in the Czech Republic


  1. Vltava

    The Vltava is the longest river in the Czech Republic, running north from its source near the German border in Šumava through Český Krumlov, České Budějovice, and Prague, merging with the Elbe at Mělník. It is 430 kilometres long and drains about 28,090 square kilometres; at their confluence the Vltava actually has more water than the Elbe and is even much longer, but joins the Elbe at a right angle to its flow so that it appears a mere tributary. The river is crossed by 18 bridges as it runs through Prague. It covers 31 kilometres within the city. Several dams were built on it in the 1950s, the biggest being Lipno Dam in Šumava. In August 2002 a flood of the Vltava killed several people and caused massive damage and disruption along its length. The best-known of the classical Czech composer Bedřich Smetana's set of six symphonic poems Má vlast is called Vltava, and is a musical depiction of the river's course through Bohemia.
