Kistanje was a trade center of this part of Bukovica. After the Kuridža rebellion in 1704, the town was renamed Kvartir, but in the 19th century it was again known as Kistanje. The second Orthodox church, dedicated to Sts Cyril and Methodius was built in 1888. In the 19th and the first part of the 20th century, Kistanje was a centre of municipality. In 1960s, the municipality was abolished and its territory was joined to the municipality of Knin.
