Hron Valley is a region in Slovakia. It is named after the Hron, the Slovak name for the 185 mile (298-kilometre) long left tributary of the Danube and the second-longest river in Slovakia. It flows from its source in the Low Tatra Mountains through central and southern Slovakia, emptying into the Danube near Sturovo and Esztergom. The river’s basin covers approximately 11 percent of Slovakia’s territory. From the 17th century until the 1930s, the river was used for wood transport.
