The Kikinda municipality extends over north Banat and covers an area of 782 square kilometres. The municipality is comprised of the city of Kikinda and 9 settlements: Banatska Topola, Banatsko Veliko Selo, Bašaid, Iđoš, Mokrin, Nakovo, Novi Kozarci, Rusko Selo and Sajan.

The municipality’s seat is in the city of Kikinda which lies on 82 m altitudes. It stretches over 13,5 square kilometres and is a typical Pannonian town. It is built in the Empress Maria Theresa’s style. There are many valuable archaeological findings of ancient cultures and civilizations in the city. Numerous mounds, necropolis and archaeological sites in the Kikinda’s surroundings are the testaments of the fact that people have been living here in organized communities since 5.000 years B.C.

This area was a temporary or permanent residence of many nations which continuously have been arriving at the Pannonian Plain. The traces of early stone and bronze age, the Celtic civilization and Sarmatians could be found here.

By the mid 16th century, Banat fell under the Ottoman Empire. The Turks were present in this area by 1718. The first Eastern Orthodox church in Kikinda was built in 1753, during the time when the Mures Serbs started to settle down in the town area. The church was a wooden shack covered by batten with the separate belfry.

Current Eastern Orthodox church was built in 1771, and the iconostasis was made by Teodor Ilič-Češnjar in 1780. In the latter 19th century, around 1880, a Roman-Catholic church was built.

Because of their contribution in the fight against the Ottoman Empire, in 1774, the citizens of Kikinda, together with the 9 neighbouring villages were granted a privileged position and certain rights within the Great District of Kikinda which existed up till 1876. In 1893, Kikinda was given city status and at that time had 24.500 inhabitants.

The City Council Hall, today the headquarters of the municipal administration, was built in the same year. Since the mid 20th century the town has started to grow rapidly and the number of inhabitants has been increasing steadily.

Kikinda is a modern industrial town, with numerous health, educational and cultural institutions.
