Neisse

 

(Polish, Nysa Łużycka; Czech, Lužická Nisa), a river in Western Europe, a left tributary of the Oder (Odra). The river is 256 km long and drains an area of 4,200 sq km. Rising on the southern slopes of the Jizerské Hory in Czechoslovakia, it flows along the western edge of the Sudetes and enters a plain below Görlitz. There are freshets, and the average discharge is about 30 cu m per sec. The largest cities along the river are Liberec in Czechoslovakia, Zittau and Görlitz in the German Democratic Republic, and Gubin in Poland. The river is navigable as far as Gubin. The Neisse forms a large part of the boundary between Poland and the German Democratic Republic.
