Kovilovo is located in the northern, Banat section of the municipality, 15 kilometer north of downtown Belgrade, on the crossroad of several streams and canals, most notably, the Vizelj. The settlement is located few kilometers to west of the Zrenjaninski put road which connects Belgrade with the town of Zrenjanin, also in Vojvodina. It is just south of Padinska Skela.
History and population
The settlement originates from the 19th century farm (salaš) of Kovilovo, inhabited by the Hungarian workers who built the embankment on the Danube's left bank. It was named after the soldier of the Red Army, Mikhail Kovilov, who was killed here during the Belgrade Offensive in 1944.
