The Oka is one of the largest rivers in Europe. Its length is 1,489.6 kilometers and it drains a basin of 245,000 square kilometers. The Oka crosses seven oblasts (regions) – Orlov, Tula, Kaluga, Moscow, Ryazan, Vladimir, and Nizhny Novgorod. It meets its confluents from fifteen areas in central Russia and runs into the Volga river near Nizhny Novgorod. The largest towns that stand on the Oka river are: Orel, Belyaev, Kaluga, Aleksin, Tarusa, Serpukhov, Kashira, Ozery, Stupino, Kolomna, Ryazan, Kasimov, Murom, Pavlovo, and Nizhniy Novgorod.
