Vojvodina (Serbian Cyrillic Војводина, German Wojwodina or Woiwodina, Hungarian Vajdaság) is an autonomous province in the Republic of Serbia. It makes up the part of the country north of the Sava and Danube rivers, whose administrative border runs from the west mainly along the Sava (at the Belgrade district with a bend towards the north) and further east towards the Romanian border almost continuously along the Danube. The administrative headquarters is Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia.

Vojvodina is home to many different ethnic groups. In addition to Serbs, who make up the absolute majority of the population with about 66.76 percent (2011), the recognised autochthonous minorities living in Vojvodina include Hungarians, Slovaks, Croats, Romanians, Bunjevats, Šokci, Russians (Ruthenians), Roma, Germans and Bulgarians.
