The northern part of Serbia – the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina lies in the specious Pannonian plain, the great central European basin.
Through this part of Serbia flow its biggest rivers: The Danube, Sava and Tisa. Above this plain, once covered by the waters of the Pannonian sea, rise two islands of higher land: The Fruška gora hills (539m) in Srem and Vršac hill (641m) in Banat. A distinctive feature of the Pannonian plain is its sandy areas, of witch the Deliblatska peščara is the best known.
Novi Sad, the capital, of Vojvodina, lies on the left bank of the Danube looking onto the slopes of the Fruška gora and Petrovaradin fortress, one of the largest and best-preserved fortresses in Europe and it is a true masterpiece of Baroque military architecture.
