History[edit]

Following the Roman conquest in the 1st century BC, the settlement was known as Burgenae.

Novi Banovci experienced a constant population growth in the 20th century. A significant increase in the neighborhood's population occurred in the mid-1990s, caused by the large influx of refugees from the Yugoslav War, especially after the Oluja military action which forced almost 250,000 Serbs from Croatia into Serbia, and many of them settled at the outskirts of Belgrade.
