1. Serbian warriors square - According to the legend, the creator of the “central square's round shape” idea was Prince Milos himself, when he visited the former Karanovac in 1832. However, based on the regulation plan of the same year, made by engineer Lazar Zuban, a large circular square was built, inscribed in the orthogonal scheme of the streets, which are cut at right angles. The recognizable urban matrix is a trademark of Kraljevo and differs city from other Serbian cities.

2.The monument to killed Serbian warriors in the wars between 1912 and 1918 (1931/32) The symbol of the city, located in the central city square and is the work of the Russian architect-artist, Roman Verhovsky.

The new communist government, annoyed by the bronze "Thessaloniki fighter" from the First World War, decided to move it (1960). Only after the reconstruction of the square (1982), the monument was returned to its location, which is now the central place for gathering of citizens in various events and manifestations.
