Ruma Municipality occupies the central part of Srem region stretching from the left side of the River Sava (in the width of 32 km) towards the North to the slopes of Fruška gora and forming a link between the Pig Srem and the Wine Srem. That is why it is commonly said that Ruma is in the heart of Srem.
It is predominantly lowland, with a rich forest belt in the Southern part of the Municipality, Trskovača pond near Platičevo, Jarčina canal, Borkovac lake near Ruma and Kudoš lake near Pavlovac. The villages in the Northern part of the Municipality are at the foot of Fruška gora.
