Jankov Most (Serbian Cyrillic: Јанков Мост, Romanian: Iancăid) is a village in Serbia. It is located in the Zrenjanin municipality, in the Central Banat District, Vojvodina province. The village has a Romanian ethnic majority (60.37%) and its population numbering 636 people (2002 census).


The first time mentioned as Iancahid in 1221. This name translats from Hungarian to Serbian as Jankov Most. Banatian historic Feliks Mileker from Vršac wrote that Dezideriu, bishop of Cenada, left Itebejs Parish and he traveled throughout Iancahid. Jankov Most is one of the oldest settlements in Zrenjanin municipal. In written sources from 14th century, it was known as "Passin Jankait". In 1660., it was mentioned that 3 settlements of Romanians and Orthodox Serbs are in this area: Jancait, Multvelin i Pessin Jancait. Later, in 18th century, the village is called "Nagy Jankahid" (Big Jankov Most) and "Kiss Jankahid" (Small Jankov Most). In 1747. the village was colonized by Romanians from Máramaros County. They came from village Bešenova, and one of proofs of this is that most of inhabitants in Iancahid have surname Besu. The village was property of many landlords through the last centuries. In the year 1781. village and pasture near was bought by count Lazar Lukač, who bought village Ečka also. 1838. village becomes property of Lazar Žigmond, and after that count Hernonkur.
