Ratkovo (Serbian Cyrillic: Ратково) is a village in Serbia. It is situated in the Odžaci municipality, West Bačka District, Vojvodina province. The population of the village is 4,118 people (2002 census), of whom 3,760 are ethnic Serbs.


Its old name in Serbian was Parabuć (Парабућ). In German, it was known as Parabutsch, and in Hungarian as Paripás or Parabuty.


The village was mentioned first in 1543. During the Ottoman rule (16th-17th century), Parabuć was populated by ethnic South Slavs. Since the end of the 17th century, the village belonged to the Habsburg Monarchy, and since 1781 many Germans settled here besides Serbs. Since 1918, the village was part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes and subsequent South Slavic states.
