The Sylva River
(Russian: Сылва) is a river in Sverdlovsk Oblast and Perm Krai
Perm Krai
in Russia. It is 493 kilometres (306 mi) in length.[1] The area of the basin is 19,700 square kilometres (7,600 sq mi). The Sylva River
flows into the Chusovoy Cove of the Kama Reservoir. It freezes up in November and stays under the ice until April. Principal tributaries: Iren River, Babka River, Irgina River, Vogulka River
(left); Barda River, Shakva River (right).[2] Main port: Kungur. Every year hundreds of tourists come to Kungur, through routes down the Sylva, Iren and Shakva rivers. The Sylva River
flows leisurely over a flat plateau, across Preduraliye Nature Preserve, and past abrupt cliffs, fossilized remnants of coral reefs left by the long-disappeared Great Permian Sea, which at some places rise up to 100 metres (330 ft) above the level of the river, covered with pine and fir groves.
