About this region
Batavia (; Dutch: Betuwe, Dutch: [ˈbeːtyʋə] (listen)) is an historical and geographical region in the Netherlands, forming large fertile islands in the river delta formed by the waters of the Rhine (Dutch: Rijn) and Meuse (Dutch: Maas) river. During the Roman empire, it was an important frontier region and source of imperial soldiers. Its name is possibly pre-Roman. Administratively, the modern version, Betuwe, is a part of the modern province of Gelderland and although the rivers and provinces have changed over history it is roughly the same. Today it has the Waal river on the south and the Lek and Nederrijn in the north (all rivers which start in the delta itself and are branches of the Rhine or Maas. Historically, the former municipality of Rijnwaarden belonged to Betuwe, now in Zevenaar, which was cut-off by the building of the Pannerdens Kanaal. A major freight railroad, the Betuweroute, passes through the Betuwe. It was opened in 2007 after many years of controversy. The Betuwe region is divided into 11 municipalities: Overbetuwe, Neder-Betuwe, Lingewaard, Arnhem (southern part), Nijmegen (northern part), Tiel, Culemborg, Neerijnen, Geldermalsen, Lingewaal and Buren.
