The Warta ( VAR-t?, Polish: ['varta] ; German: Warthe ['vat?] ; Latin: Varta) is a river in western-central Poland and a tributary of the Oder. With a length of approximately 795 kilometres (494 mi), it is the country's second-longest river located within its borders and third-longest in terms of total length.[1] The Warta has a basin area of 54,520 square kilometers (21,050 sq mi)[1] and it is navigable from Kostrzyn nad Odr? to Konin, approximately half of its length.[2] It is connected to the Vistula by the Note? River and the Bydgoszcz Canal (Kana? Bydgoski) near the city of Bydgoszcz.

Course

It rises in the Kraków-Cz?stochowa Upland at Kromo?ów in Zawiercie, Silesian Voivodeship, flows through ?ód? Land, Greater Poland and Lubusz Land, where it empties into the Oder near Kostrzyn at the border with Germany.

The Greater Polish Warta Basin was the original Poland; it is said that the Polans (Polish: Polanie), a West Slavic tribe, settled the Warta Basin in the 8th century. The river is also mentioned in the second stanza of the Polish national anthem, "Poland Is Not Yet Lost."
