JesenĂ­ky Protected Landscape Area

Hydrology

Jeseníky is a notable spring area and source of streams. The main ridge of the Hrubý Jeseník range also forms the European watershed between the Danube and Odra catchments. Approximately one third of the territory of Jeseníky PLA, in the west, is drained by tributaries of the Morava river (Branná, Desná, Oskava). Water from the north, east and south–east flows via the BÄ›lá, Opava and Moravice streams and into the Odra towards the Baltic Sea.
