Autonomous Province of Vojvodina

Vojvodina is the autonomous province of citizens who live in it and it is a constituent part of the Republic of Serbia. It is mostly a low-land area, intersected by three navigable rivers – the Danube, Tisza and Sava, as well as a canal network, roads and railways, thus connecting the Central and Western Europe to the Balkans and the Middle East. The most significant links are Corridor X for the road transport and the Danube-the Pan-European Transport Corridor VII for the water transport. Vojvodina also has the oldest National Park “Fruška Gora”, the hills on whose slopes 17 monasteries have been built over the centuries. Vojvodina is characterised by arable land of good quality, overall economic and cultural development, great population density and demographic diversity. Vojvodina is a region which traditionally fosters multilingualism, multiculturalism and multiconfessionalism.
