MORAVA, mō'rȧ-vȧ. The largest river of Servia. It is formed by the union at Stolač, Servia, of the southern and the western Morava, the former rising in the Turkish Vilayet of Kossovo, and the latter on the southwest boundary of Servia (Map: Turkey in Europe, C 2). The united stream enters the Danube 30 miles east of Belgrade. The Morava is about 240 miles long, and is navigable for small boats 50 miles from its mouth.
