The Lower Morava Valley (Czech: Dolnomoravský úval / Jihomoravská pánev also, German: Nieder March Talsenke, Slovak: Dolnomoravský úval) is a geomorphological formation (special type of Valley) in the Moravia (Czech Republic). It is formed by the depression in the Western Carpathians (Ždánice Forest, Kyjov Hills and Mikulov Hills) in the west and Bílé Karpaty and Chvojnice hills in the east. The drainage to the River Morava of the Danube basin runs finally to the Black Sea.
The Lower Morava Valley is a nordest part of Vienna basin (Western Carpathians) and the corridor to Napajedla Gate, Upper Morava Valley, Moravian Gate and later in final goal North European Plain (Poland- Lower Silesia - Galicia) since ancient times. Here ran one arm of the most important trade routes from southern Europe to the Baltic Sea (e.g. the Amber Road - eastern branch) and also routes from Moravia to Upper Silesia and Lesser Poland. The Emperor Ferdinand Northern Railway (one part) built in 1840-41 from Břeclav (Vienna) to Přerov also traversed the Lower Morava Valley.
