Tisza River | Hungary
has its springs in Romania, the Carpathian Mountains. It flows first to the south and turns then to the west, forming partially the border to Ukraine. As from Tiscabecs it becomes for some kilometers Border River between Romania and Hungary. It turns then in Hungary to the north and meets again the border to Romania.
At the border triangle of Slovenia / Hungary / Romania it turns again towards southwest. Having crossed the entire east of Hungary, the river crosses at Szegedin the border to Serbia. River Tisza is full of bows and bends and has therefore a length of 1308 km even though the direct distance between its spring and the mouth at River Danube is only 467 km.
River Tisza in Serbia
The mouth into River Danube lies opposite the town of Stari Lankamen, 23 km below Novi Sad. Because of the shallow, sandy banks one has normally no problems to stop somewhere.
