Great Rivers of Europe
The rivers shown on this map are among the most important waterways in Europe. They are drawn here in their full length, from source to sea, even though only a portion may be navigable. Nearly all of them flow to the north; only the Rhône/Saône flows south to the Mediterranean Sea and the Danube flows east to the Black Sea.
