The Moldova ( German  Moldau , not to be confused with the Moldau in the Czech Republic ) is a river in the northeast of Romania and has its source in the Bukovina region in the Suceava district . The river flows into the Sereth near the village of Roman in Neamț County . The river has a length of 237 km, a catchment area of 4315 km² and (shortly before its confluence with the Sereth) a water flow of 32 m³ / s.

The former principality of Moldova probably got its name from this river. The name of the Moldova region , through which the river of the same name flows, is also derived from this river designation, as is the part of the region located outside Romania east of the Prut , today's Republic of Moldova ( Moldova ), although its territory is not touched.

In the area of ​​the upper reaches of the Vltava there are numerous Romanian Orthodox monasteries, most of which are referred to as Moldavian monasteries . Eight of these monasteries or churches were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1993.
