Below the city of Lazarev, in the Old Bazaar, five old fountains, arranged in a line of about two kilometers, have been preserved. After one surrender, these fountains originate from the Roman period, because at that time the road was moving along the road to the west-Morava valley. These, allegedly, were "spruce springs" (lupus fountains), which served the inhabitants of later centuries, to this day. All fountains are of a similar shape, although they are different in size and quantity of water, and their present appearance comes from the Turkish period.
