Ravno is a village and the seat of its municipality in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina entity. Ravno was a separate county until 1963, when it became a part of the Trebinje municipality. In 1994, the border changed and Ravno became a municipality again. This time however, part of the frontier lands of Trebinje municipality were added as part of Ravno. When Ravno inherited part of the former Trebinje municipality it has an area of 447 km2 (173 sq mi). These added borderlands went under the title Travunian Marches (Trebinjska Krajina) and were mostly inhabited by Serbs.
