Christiana is an unincorporated community in New Castle County, Delaware, located on the Christina River, 12 miles southwest of Wilmington. It is home to the Christiana Hospital and the Christiana Mall and is the location of the northern terminus of Delaware Route 1 just north of an interchange with Interstate 95. Despite sharing a name with Christiana Hundred, the community of Christiana is located in White Clay Creek Hundred.


It is named after the Christina River, which is in turn named after Christina, Queen of Sweden.
