Ivanovo (Serbian Cyrillic: Иваново; Hungarian: Sándoregyháza; Bulgarian: Иваново; German: Alexanderkirchen) is a village located in the Pančevo municipality, in the southeastern South Banat District of the Vojvodina, Serbia. The village has a population numbering 1,053 people who are permanent residents (2011 census).


The place name means Ivan's location. A legend tells about a Bulgarian man called Ivan who was the first settler of this place. The Hungarian and the German name also mean location of Alexander's church. Both names refer to Sándor Bonnaz, Bishop of Csanád. He protected the building of the church before his death. The church has been built from 1889 to 1899.[1][2]
