This settlement was known for its catholic population through the last few centuries. Most of the population moved to Croatia during the last civil war in Yugoslavia (1992-1995). After the war this small village started to expand. A large number of new residents were Serbian refugees who found a new place for living after they had lost their old homes during the war. The village began to grow and soon became a suburban part of Banja Luka City.
The road infrastructure is still in very bad shape since there is no budget investment planned. As of 2010, there is a post office in operation and a medical ambulance is in planning to be opened. The old public school is also still operational.
