National borders, borders of banates (banovinas), district borders, roads, watercourses, and settlements are marked on this detailed map of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and its neighbouring provinces. In October 1929, King Alexander Karađorđević signed the Law on the Name and Division of the Kingdom into Administrative Areas. This law also changed the name of the country to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and introduced a new administrative-territorial division into nine banates (Drava, Sava, Littoral, Danube, Vrbas, Drina, Zeta, Morava, Vardar). Territorial changes within the mentioned banates were introduced in 1931: the districts Vukovar, Vinkovci, Županja, and Čabar were annexed to the Sava Banate; the Srijem area was divided between the Sava and Dunav Banates; the Korčula district was annexed to the Littoral Banate.
