Pannonian plain

The Pannonian plain is a large plain in central/south-eastern Europe which was left over when the prehistoric Pannonian sea dried out. The river Danube divides the plain roughly in half. Although the rain is not plentiful, it usually falls when necessary and plain is a major agricultural area; it is sometimes said that these fields could feed the whole of Europe.

The plain is divided between Croatia, Hungary, Romania and Serbia and Montenegro.

Large areas of the plain that do not necessarily correspond to national borders include Baranya/Baranja, Vojvodina, Bačka, Banat, Mačva, Srem/Srijem, Slavonija, Transylvania.
