The Dâmboviţa River (spelled Dîmboviţa in pre-1993 Romanian orthography) is a river in Romania having its source in the Făgăraş Mountains and flowing southward.
For centuries, Dâmboviţa river was the main source of drinking water for the city of Bucharest.
The portion of the river flowing through the capital was channelled twice: in 1883 - to combat regular floods -, and in the late 1970s, to aid in the replanning of the Central area and the construction of the Bucharest Metro.

A long acme of over 12 km – which lowers in the deep saddles of Mezei and Oticului, to close to the margin of the pine forest – connects Iezer- Papusa with the main ridge of Fagaras mountains.
So, in the tall curling of the watershed line between Raul Doamnei and Dambovita and Targului River, two saddles define three groups of mountains: Papau (west), Iezeru (north), Papusa (north and east).
