The basin consists of:
- the Southern Slovak Basin (SK: Juhoslovenská kotlina) + Central Ipoly Basin (HU: Középsö-Ipoly-medence) + Borsod Hills (HU: Borsodi-dombság)
- the Bodva Hills (SK: Bodvianska pahorkatina)
- the Košice Basin (SK: Košická kotlina) + Hernád-Valley Basin (HU: Hernádvölgy-medence)
