The Una-Sana Canton[1] (Bosnian: Unsko-sanski kanton;[1] Croatian: Unsko-sanska županija; Serbian Cyrillic: Унско-сански кантон) is one of the ten cantons of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina entity within Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in the northwest of the country and has been named after the rivers Una and Sana. The center of the cantonal government is Bihać. The canton is bordered by Republika Srpska from east, Canton 10 from southeast, and Croatia from south, west, and north.


It is divided into municipalities (usually eponymous with towns) of Bihać, Bosanska Krupa, Bosanski Petrovac, Bužim, Cazin, Ključ, Sanski Most and Velika Kladuša.

The largest airport of Željava is located near Bihać and is located right between Bosnian and Croatian border.
