Petrovac (Serbian Cyrillic: Петровац) is a village and municipality located in Republika Srpska, an entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is situated in the western part of Republika Srpska and the central part of the Krajina region. Petrovac was created from a small part of the pre-war municipality of Bosanski Petrovac, whose remaining portion kept the original name and is a part of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.[1] The municipality seat is in Drinić.

The total area of the municipality is 137 km², about a sixth of 853 km² of the pre-war municipality. It is bordered by rivers of Una, Sana and Unca (river).[3]
