Kraljeve Vode (Eng. King’s waters) were named so since 1893 and an interesting event occurred just before that. The visit of the King Aleksandar I Obrenović to Kulaševac in 1893 was very important for the local people, and KraljeveVode are the proof of it. The arrival of the King to Zlatibor, judging by the story, was an exceptional event that was long remembered. In front of all the people from Zlatibor, then president of the municipality PetarMićić made a toast and asked the King for the permission to name the water of Kulaševac after him – King’s Waters (Serb. Kraljeve Vode). That is how Kulaševac got a new name, and King Aleksandar I Obrenović built a fountain there on which it was carved: “King Aleksandar I, 20th August 1983”. In the year 1931, the presentresidential area of Zlatibor obtained a water supply network by pumping the water from the fountain Đurkovac and the fountain built by the King into a reservoir.
