Traffic[edit]

Due to the proximity to Croatia and that country's narrow northern outline, various important traffic lines between Zagreb and the Adriatic traverse the Una-Sana canton, such as the railway line Bosanski Novi — Bihać — Knin. The largest airport of Željava is located near Bihać and is located right between Bosnian and Croatian border.
