Right next to the archaeological site Trebić there is the drinking fountain of Prince Miloš Obrenović, erected in his honour in 1860. Although renovated several times it has retained its authentic appearance until this day. Thanks to the healing waters of Sokobanja, many people who drank from this fountain felt better. The Prince himself was one of them and for this reason he gave the order for the fountain to be erected at the entrance of the spa.

The original inscription on the fountain has been completely preserved: ‘Miloš Obrenović I, Prince of Serbia erects the fountain for this source in everlasting memory of his arrival at the Spa, in the year 1860’.
