The Seine (French: La Seine, pronounced: [la sɛn]) is a 776 km (482 mi)-long river and an important commercial waterway within the Paris Basin in the north of France. Seine river rises at Source-Seine, 30 kilometres (19 mi) northwest of Dijon in northeastern France in the Langres plateau, flowing through Paris and into the English Channel at Le Havre (and Honfleur on the left bank) as its shown in seine river map. Seine river is navigable by ocean-going vessels as far as Rouen, 120 km (75 mi) from the sea.
Over 60% of seine river length, as far as Burgundy, is negotiable by commercial riverboats and nearly its whole length is available for recreational boating; excursion boats offer sightseeing tours of the Rive Droite and Rive Gauche within the city of Paris as its mentioned in seine river map. The name "Seine" comes from the Latin Sequana. Some have argued that Sicauna is cognate to the name of Saône River, though an argued relationship to the River Shannon in Ireland is unlikely, given the very different forms of the two.
There are 37 bridges within Paris and dozens more spanning the seine river outside the city as its shown in seine river map. Examples in Paris include the Pont Louis-Philippe and Pont Neuf, the latter of which dates back to 1607. Outside the city, examples include the Pont de Normandie, one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world, which links Le Havre to Honfleur.
The basin area of seine river is 78,910 square kilometres, 2% of which is forest and 78% cultivated land. In addition to Paris, three other cities with a population over 100,000 are in the Seine watershed—Le Havre, Rouen, and Rheims—with an annual urban growth rate of 0.2%. The population density is 201 per square kilometre as its shown in seine river map.
