Location

Petlovo Brdo is located in the central part of the municipality, on the eastern slopes of the 205 meters high hill of the same name. The neighborhood developed on the crossing of two major suburban roads of Belgrade, Ibarska magistrala and Kružni put. It is bordered by the neighborhoods of Labudovo Brdo on the north and Kijevo on the east, while west and south from the neighborhood are still not urbanized. Further to the west is the neighborhood of Železnik, while further to the south the cemetery of Orlovača, both in the municipality of Čukarica.

The name of the hill and neighborhood, Petlovo brdo, is Serbian for "rooster's hill" (petao - rooster, brdo - hill). Younger generations refer the the neighborhood simply as Pevac which is just more rural name for rooster.
