The Bečva (Czech pronunciation: [ˈbɛtʃva]) is a river in the Czech Republic. It is a left tributary of the river Morava. The Bečva is created by two source streams, the Northern Rožnovská Bečva (whose valley separates the Moravian-Silesian Beskids in the North from the Vsetínské vrchy in the South) and the Southern Vsetínská Bečva (whose valley separates the Vsetínské vrchy in the North from the Javorníky in the South). It is 61.6 km long, and its basin area is 1,613 km2.[1]
