'*The tale of the Three sisters rivers*'

Tale of the three sisters rivers
(Slovenia, in picture is river Soča)

Rivers Drava, Sava and Soča are sisters. Once upon a time they were talking and wondered, which one would be the first to reach the sea the following day. In the evening Sava and Soča fell asleep. Drava pretended to sleep, then started to quietly flow on. When Sava awoke in the morning, she noticed that Drava was already rolling towards the sea. So she angrilly started to run briskly. Soča was the last to awaken. When she realized how the sisters had tricked her, she crashed with great force through the mountain walls, raged through rocky gorges and arrived first in the sea. And so it is to this day. Drava rolls along quietly and secretively, lively Sava rushes on, but both are watering the Black sea. Soča however speedily thunders through narrow gorges of Goriška mountains into the Adriatic sea. And this is the origin of the folk saying: Drava broke its way along the valley, Sava spread out on the plain, Soča winds its way towards the south.
