Brod (Cyrillic: Брод) or originally known as Bosanski Brod (Cyrillic: Босански Брод) and during the Bosnian war it was called Srpski Brod (Cyrillic: Српски Брод) is a town and municipality located on the south bank of the river Sava in the northern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is situated in the northwestern part of the Republika Srpska entity and the western part of the Bosanska Posavina region.


Prior to the Bosnian War it was Bosanski Brod. However, during the Bosnian War the prefix Bosanski was replaced with Srpski. After the war the name was ruled unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and was changed back to Bosanski Brod.

In May 2009, the National Assembly of the Republika Srpska removed the prefix Bosanski resulting in the name Brod. This has led Bosniaks living in the RS entity to file a judicial protest stating that changing the city's name endangers the vital national interests of the local Bosniak community; the outcome of this lawsuit is still pending.

The Croatian town of Slavonski Brod is situated on the opposite (northern) bank of the Sava forming a built-up area of more than 110,000 inhabitants.

The bridge over the Sava River at Brod was one of the few between Croatia and Bosnia not to be destroyed; it was reinforced by NATO, using troops of the U.S. 10th Mountain Division, to keep open a link between the two countries.
