River description:

This river sources on south slopes of Malá Fatra Mountains in an altitude of 790 m above sea level. It flows in southwest direction, later directly to the south, and mouths into Vážský Dunaj from its right side. The length of navigable section is 192 kms. River basin takes 5140 km².

However, there are no water maps of this area available up to now. The river flows, in its upper part, through Hornonitrianska basin, mostly in one gravelled water bed. The banks are dense overgrown with trees. The river  streams quickly, and makes often small rapids. Vtáčník mountain range along its left bank is changed with Tríbeč moutain range, along right bank you can follow Malá Fatra Mountains, Strážov Highlands, and later Inovec, coming into unot-expressive Nitra Highlands. From here, Nitra-river is a quiet flow with moderate stream, however, with many weirs. Below some of them, there could be lack of water-level, so you are forced to use mill-races. In the community of Dolné Lefantovce and Dolné Kršany, there are turning aside long side-arms of so called Stará Nitra (Old Nitra) – first to the left, the second to the right. In its lower section, below the town of Nitra (the river here is mostly embanked), and in its last sectgion, the whole river bed is changing, so substantional shortening is coming. Navigation on Nitra-river is not too popular, owing to big pollution, caused with its first tributary (Handlovka-river) and owing to great industrial areas at the towns of Nováky and Zemianske Kostolany. Nevertheless, there is taken place each autumn here, the event „Plavba Nitrou“ (Nitra Navigation).
