Sava (name)

Sava is a common male personal name in south Slavic languages, and is also used in Romanian and Bosniak. Perhaps the most famous example is the Serbian medieval prince turned monk Saint Sava. In Bosnia Sava could also be a female name, a result of the tradition of naming female children like rivers – in this case, after the river Sava. Saba is a popular Georgian variant.


The Sava (, , ) is a river in Central Europe, a right side tributary of the Danube. It flows through Slovenia, Croatia, along the northern border of Bosnia and Herzegovina, through Serbia, discharging into the Danube in Belgrade. Its central part is a natural border of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia. The Sava forms the northern border of the Balkan Peninsula, and southern edge of the Pannonian Plain.

The Sava is long, including the Sava Dolinka headwater rising in Zelenci, Slovenia. It is the greatest tributary of the Danube by volume of water, and second-largest after Tisza in terms of catchment area and length. It drains a significant portion of the Dinaric Alps region, through the major tributaries of Drina, Bosna, Kupa, Una, Vrbas, Lonja, Kolubara, Bosut and Krka. The Sava is one of the longest rivers in Europe and among a handful of European rivers of that length that do not drain directly into a sea.

The population in the Sava River basin is estimated at 8,176,000, and it connects three national capitals— Ljubljana, Zagreb and Belgrade. The Sava is navigable for larger vessels from the confluence of the Kupa River in Sisak, Croatia, approximately two-thirds of its length.
