Ethnicity was then: Montenegrins - 615 (43,99%)Serbs - 545 (38,98%)Croats - 12 (0,86%)Others - 226HistoryThe history of Petrovac began in Roman times, when a couple of villas were built at Krš Medinski: a 4th-century mosaic floor, remains of a villa and baths have been found behind St Ilija's church. Later, there was a Slav village. The village was first mentioned in the Chronicle of the Priest of Duklja. At the northern end of the bay is a 16th-century Venetian fortress, Kastel Lastva, built to discourage pirates. The name, Petrovac, was given at the beginning of the 20th century after King Peter I Karađorđević. Before, the name was Kaštel Lastva.In the bay are two islets (Katič and Sveta Neđelja), one of which is topped by a small chapel, built in thanksgiving for a shipwrecked sailor's life.At the beginning of the 20th century, Petrovac had around 300 inhabitants.In World War II, British agents were landed at nearby Perazića Do. They intended to establish contact with Yugoslav partisans (Operation Hydra).TourismBetween the two world wars, Petrovac was famous as a popular destination for wealthy tourists from (the former) Yugoslavia. Petrovac is today a popular summer beach resort, its visitors coming predominantly from Montenegro and Serbia. Tourist accommodation has expanded greatly in recent years, although less obtrusively than at Budva and the quality has also improved in response to market demand. The resort's main attraction is its beach. There is a night club in the old castello.
