Idvor (Serbian Cyrillic: Идвор) is a village in northern Serbia. It is located in the Kovačica municipality, South Banat District, Vojvodina province. The village has a Serb ethnic majority (93.98%) and its population numbering 1,198 people (2002 census).
In Serbian, the village is known as Idvor (Идвор), in German as Idwor, and in Hungarian as Torontáludvar. The town's name originated from Hyd Var, which means "Guard near border crossing" in Hungarian.
During Ottoman rule (in 1660/66), Idvor was populated by ethnic Serbs. Another wave of Serbs came here in the end of the 17th century in a "great migration" led by Arsenije Čarnojević. Until 1795, village was situated at location known as "Staro Selo", and in that year it was moved to its current position.
