Western Bug

The better known of the two, also known as the Western Bug, or Buh in Ukrainian language, flows from the central Ukraine to the west, forming part of the boundary between that nation and Poland, passes along the Polish-Belarusian border, within Poland, and empties into the Narew river near Serock (actually to the artficial Zegrzyn Lake). It is 772 km long (most part (587 km) is in Poland; 4th longest Polish river) and has a basin area of 39,420 sq. km (19,284 in Poland).
