Plav is the centre of Plav Municipality (population of 13,805).
In Serbian/Montenegrin the town is known as Плав/Plav; in Bosnian as Plav; and in Albanian as Plava. The name may also derive from the Albanian word "Pllaja" meaning "plateau" since the region is surrounded by mountains and plateaus for cattle.
Plav has an active nightlife.
The settlement of Plav itself was founded by the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman census organised in 1582-83 registered the Plav nahiyah within the Sanjak of Scutari with 18 villages; according to historian Milan Vasić all inhabitants had personal names with a Serbian character, and no Muslims were present. In 1878, following the Treaty of Berlin, the city of Plav was ceded to Montenegro by the Ottoman Empire despite having an Albanian majority population.
