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.
