Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Guests,
I would like to welcome you to our website. Thank you very much for being interested in the work of the International Commission for the Protection of the Elbe River (ICPER).
RNDr. Petr Kubala
President of the ICPER
The Elbe has the fourth largest river basin in Central and Western Europe after the Danube, Vistula and Rhine basins and is inhabited by about 25 million people. More than 99% of the river basin is located in Germany and the Czech Republic, with less than 1% in Austria and Poland.
