Meaning of JIU RIVER in English

river formed south of Petrosani, southwestern Romania, with the joining of two headstreams rising in the Vlcan and Parng mountains. It then flows south, cutting a wild, deep gorge, the Surduc Pass in the Transylvanian Alps (Southern Carpathians), before flowing onto the Danube Plain and into the Danube River. The length of the Jiu River is about 205 miles (330 km). The upper Jiu Basin forms the Petrosani Depression and coalfield.
