The Poprad (German also the Popper , Hungarian Poprád ) is a river in Slovakia and Poland that has its source in the High Tatras, flows through the town of Poprad and then flows into the Dunajec River above Nowy Sącz in Poland . Of the total length of 174 km, 113 km are in Slovakia, 31.1 km form the border and 30.9 km are in Poland. The catchment area of the Poprad is the Oberzips.
The river is created by the confluence of the Hincov potok (German Hinzenbach ) and Krupá streams . The source of the Hincov potok (regarded as the main source of the Poprad) is the glacial lake Veľké Hincovo pleso (German Great Hinzensee ), which is located in the High Tatras at 1965 meters above sea level. The source of the Krupá, however, is the glacier lake Popradské pleso (German Poppersee ).
