Svitava

Svitava (German: Zwittau) the easternmost and minor of the two rivers running thru Brno.

The confluence with the second one, Svratka, lies some 200 odd meters southwards of Brno's IKEA store, which's situated between the two rivers nearby of the TESCO hypermarket (more northwards). Both stores share the parking place.

There is an bone-fire place near the confluence and a weir on Svratka, too. From the point of confluence you can see a bridge connecting the country roads on the both banks nearby the former village Prizrenice (westwards), now part of Brno.
