Volodar Rostislavich (Russian: Володарь Ростиславич) (died 1124) was Prince of Zvenyhorod (1085–92) and Peremyshl (1092–97).

Zvenyhorod depicted on the map (of 1190) as Svenigrod in P. of Halicz (light green).

He actively was involved in the Polish internal affairs. Volodar also waged a war against the Grand Prince of Kiev Sviatopolk II of Kiev and his son Yaroslav. In 1121 Volodar was imprisoned in Poland, but was bonded out by his brother Vasilko Rostislavich.

Together with Vasilko participated at the federal council in Liubech in 1097 (see Council of Liubech).

His father was Rostislav of Tmutarakan; his son was Volodymyrko of Halych, father of Yaroslav Osmomysl.

Today there is confusion between two localities of former Zvenyhorod city, one being located in Pustomyty Raion near Lviv and another in Buchach Raion of Ternopil Oblast. The map on the left shows one east of Halicz, which is one in the Ternopil Oblast, while the official Ukrainian historiography claims the one near Lviv, which would be located north of Halicz.
