River description:

The upper source springs in a gap between hills of Černá hora (Black Mountain) and Stráž, on a state border with Germany, near to the community of Kvilda in an altitude of 1172 m of sea level, first as a Černý potok (Black Brook), and from Kvilda as Teplá Vltava (Warm Vltava). The second source, Studená Vltava (Cold Vltava) flows from the right side after 30 kilometers of distance.  From its sprong up to Vyšší Brod, the river follows the state border, afterthat it turns with sharp bent to the north to inland, and this direction is kept (except a loop in Prague where it declinates to the east and again to the north) to its mouth into Labe (Elbe) in Mělník.
