Podravina (in Croatian) or Podravje (in Slovenian) are Slavic names for the Drava river basin in Croatia and Slovenia.

The Drava River at Maribor, Slovenia


Between 1929 and 1941 a province of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia known as the Drava Banovina (Drava province) existed in the area with its capital in Ljubljana. The Drava Banovina comprised most of present-day Slovenia.

Today, one of the counties in Croatia is named Virovitica-Podravina, however the official capital of the region is the city of Koprivnica which is also the capital of Koprivnica-Križevci County.[1]
