Dvor (Двор) is a town and a municipality in Sisak-Moslavina County, in Central Croatia. The town is located across the Una River from Novi Grad (formerly Bosanski Novi) in the Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

History

Dvor was part of the Zagreb County within the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia. When Yugoslavia was formed, this municipality was in the Vrbas Banovina. It was not incorporated into Croatia when the Croatian Banovina was formed, in 1939. In 1941, the town became a part of the Independent State of Croatia. After the end of World War II the town officially became part of SR Croatia within Yugoslavia, which largely followed Croatia-Slavonia's former border in this area.

From 1991-1995, Dvor was a town in the unrecognized Republika Srpska Krajina. After Operation Storm in 1995 the municipality was returned to Croatian control.
