Bela Voda - The most important information

Bela Voda or White Water is a village located 205 km south of Belgrade, and belongs to the town of Krusevac, which is 14 km away. It was named after the water that came out of the spring that was located on the place where the Sculpture Park is today, and thus created white foam.

History of White Water
White Water became part of the Principality of Serbia after the Second World War, and in 1954 an industrial railway was built that leads to the Maidans of White Water, which also contain the sandstone of White Water, for which the village is famous. Since 1975, the "Rosette of White Water", a cultural event, has been held in White Water in mid-July, when the Stone Rosette Award is presented. The first winner of this award was Desanka Maksimovic.
