Map of Plandište municipality



In Serbian, the village is known as Пландиште or Plandište, in Romanian as Plandiște, in Hungarian as Zichyfalva, in German as Zichydorf, and in Macedonian: Пландиште.

The name of the village derived from the word "plandovati" used in the local Serbian dialect, which in modern standard Serbian means "odmarati", and in English means "to rest".


First data about this settlement is from the second half of the 17th century when it was mentioned under name "Morminta". In this time, settlement was populated by Serbs. After Germans were settled in this area (in 1783), settlement was expanded and named "Zičidorf". In 1805, settlement had population of 2,037 people. After World War I it was named "Mariolana" and after World War II it was named "Plandište". In the end of World War II, Germans left to Germany, while 1,919 colonists from Macedonia, other places of Vojvodina, Slovenia and Croatia settled in Plandište. Before World War I, settlement was part of Banlok municipality, and later it was part of Vršac municipality. During the 1950s, Plandište became administrative seat of its own municipality.
