A river mouth is the part of a river where the river debouches into another river, a lake, a reservoir, a sea, or an ocean. The water from a river can enter the receiving body in a variety of different ways; the motion of a river is influenced by the relative density of the river compared to the receiving water, the rotation of the earth, any ambient motion in the receiving water, such as tides or seiches. If the river water has a higher density than the surface of the receiving water, the river water will plunge below the surface; the river water will either form an underflow or an interflow within the lake. However, if the river water is lighter than the receiving water, as is the case when fresh river water flows into the sea, the river water will float along the surface of the receiving water as an overflow. Alongside these advective transports, inflowing water will diffuse. At the mouth of a river, the change in flow condition can cause the river to drop any sediment it is carrying; this sediment deposition can generate a variety of landforms, such as deltas, sand bars and tie channels.
Many places in the United Kingdom take their names from their positions at the mouths of rivers, such as Plymouth and Great Yarmouth. Confluence River delta Estuary Liman

Logar Valley (Slovenia)
The Logar Valley is a valley in the Kamnik Alps, in the Municipality of Solčava, Slovenia. The Slovene name for the valley is of recent coinage and is derived from the Logar Farm, which in turn is derived from log. In 1987, the valley received protected status as a landscape park encompassing 24.75 square kilometres. The Logar Valley is a typical U-shaped glacial valley, it is divided into three parts. The lower part is named Log, the middle part Plest or Plestje, the upper part Kot or Ogradec. Altogether 35 people live on the isolated farmsteads in the valley; the Logar Valley is ringed by the following peaks: Strelovec, Krofička, Ojstrica, Lučka Baba, Brana, Turska Gora, Mrzla Gora. It terminates in a head wall beneath the Okrešelj Cirque, where the Savinja River starts at an ice-cold spring at an elevation of 1,280 meters and flows to Rinka Falls. Although the Logar Valley is not narrow, inversions are common due to the influence of a northern anticyclone. Temperature distributions on the slopes are influenced by differences between the sunny and shady areas, seen in different snow and ice conditions in the winter.
A walking path through the valley leads past a number of points of interest: the source of Black Creek, wooden logging chutes, a burl-covered ash tree, a charcoal-maker’s hut, other sights. Media related to Logar Valley at Wikimedia Commons
Celje is the third-largest town in Slovenia. It is a regional center of the traditional Slovenian region of Styria and the administrative seat of the City Municipality of Celje; the town of Celje is located below Upper Celje Castle at the confluence of the Savinja, Hudinja, Ložnica, Voglajna rivers in the lower Savinja Valley, at the crossing of the roads connecting Ljubljana, Maribor and the Central Sava Valley. It lies 238 m above mean sea level. Celje was known as Celeia during the Roman period. Early attestations of the name during or following Slavic settlement include Cylia in 452, ecclesiae Celejanae in 579, Zellia in 824, in Cilia in 1310, Cilli in 1311, Celee in 1575; the proto-Slovene name *Ceľe or *Celьje, from which modern Slovene Celje developed, was borrowed from Vulgar Latin Celeae. The name is of pre-Roman origin and its further etymology is unclear. In the local Slovene dialect, Celje is called Cele. In German it is called Cilli, it is known in Italian as Cilli or Celie; the first settlement in the area of Celje appeared during the Hallstatt era.
The settlement was known to Ancient Greek historians as Kelea. Once the area was incorporated in the Roman Empire in 15 BC, it was known as Civitas Celeia, it received municipal rights in AD 45 under the name municipium Claudia Celeia during the reign of the Roman Emperor Claudius. Records suggest that the town was rich and densely populated, secured with the walls and towers, containing multi-storied marble palaces, wide squares, streets, it was called the second. A Roman road through Celeia led from Aquileia to Pannonia. Celeia soon became a flourishing Roman colony, many great buildings were constructed, such as the temple of Mars, known across the Empire. Celeia was incorporated into Aquileia ca. 320 under the Roman Emperor Constantine I. The city was razed by Slavic tribes during the Migration period of the 5th and 6th centuries, but was rebuilt in the Early Middle Ages; the first mention of Celje in the Middle Ages was under the name of Cylie in Wolfhold von Admont's Chronicle, written between 1122 and 1137.
The town was the seat of the Counts of Celje from 1341 to 1456 It acquired market-town status in the first half of the 14th century and town privileges from Count Frederick II on 11 April 1451. After the Counts of Celje died out in 1456, the region was inherited by the Habsburgs of Austria and administered by the Duchy of Styria; the city walls and defensive moat were built in 1473. The town defended itself against Turks and in 1515 during great Slovene peasant revolt against peasants, who had taken Old Castle. Many local nobles converted to Protestantism during the Protestant Reformation, but the region was converted back to Roman Catholicism during the Counter-Reformation. Celje became part of the Habsburgs' Austrian Empire during the Napoleonic Wars. In 1867, after the defeat of Austria in the Austro-Prussian War, the town became part of Austria-Hungary; the first service on the Vienna-Trieste railway line came through Celje on 27 April 1846. In 1895, Celje secondary school, established in 1808, began to teach in Slovene.
At the end of the 19th century and in the early 20th century, Celje was a center of German nationalism which had repercussions for Slovenes. The 1910 census showed. A symbol of this was the German Cultural Center, built in 1906 and opened on 15 May 1907, today it is Celje Hall; the centuries-old German name of the town, sounded no longer German enough to some German residents, the form Celle being preferred by many. Population growth was steady during this period. In 1900, Celje had 6,743 inhabitants and by 1924 this had grown to 7,750; the National Hall, which hosts the Mayors Office and Town Council today, was built in 1896. The first telephone line was installed in 1902 and the city received electric power in 1913. Slovene and German ethnic nationalism increased during the early 20th centuries. With the collapse of Austria-Hungary in 1918 as a result of World War I, Celje became part of the Kingdom of Serbs and Slovenes. During this period, the town experienced a rapid industrialization and a substantial growth in population.
Celje was occupied by Nazi Germany in April 1941. The Gestapo arrived in Celje on 16 April 1941 and were followed three days by SS leader Heinrich Himmler, who inspected Stari pisker. During the war the city suffered from allied bombing, aimed at important communication lines and military installations; the National Hall was damaged. The toll of the war on the city was heavy; the city had a pre-war population of 20,000 and lost 575 people during the war between the ages of 20 and 30. More than 1,500 people were deported into the German interior of the Third Reich. Around 300 people were around 1,000 people imprisoned in Celje's prisons. An unknown number of citizens were forcibly conscripted into the German army. Around 600 "stolen children" were taken to Nazi Germany for Germanization. A monument in Celje called Vojna in mir by the sculptor Jakob Savinšek, commemorates the World War II era. After the end of the war, the remaining German-speaking portion of the populace was expelled. Anti-tank trenches and other sites were used to create 25 mass graves in Celje and its immediate surroundings and were filled with Croatian and Slovenian militia members that had collaborated with the Germans, as well as civilians.
