The Moldova in Romania
The Moldova at Cornu Lucii
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.
