Spa’s park, which spans over 40 ha with surrounding woods, is the second largest in Serbia and has a monumental fountain at its center. Kur-salon, entertainment hall considered to be the symbol and the most impressive building in the spa, was built in 1932 by order of King Aleksandar Karađorđević. This fact explains why Banja Koviljača is sometimes called “King’s Spa”. People gave it one more name, “The Beauty of Podrinje”, thanks to the gorgeous nature surrounding it. Other notable constructions that should be noted are the Sulfur Bathroom of King Peter the First, Mud Bath Pavilion, and spa villas called Herzegovina, Dalmatia, Bosnia, Koviljača, and others which are among the 80 protected ones keeping both secrets and spirit of the bygone times.
