Etymology

Most of today's town territory belongs to the village of Vrbica. Since Duke Miloš Obrenović often resided in the Bukovička Banja Spa, he decided to build a church in Vrbica in 1858 (one of his "repentrance churches"), dedicate it to St. Archangel Gabriel, and to form the town of Aranđelovac ("The town of Archangel") from the villages Vrbica and Bukovik.

Notabilities

.The pavilion of Duke Miloš and several mineral water sources are also situated in the park. The mineral water is used in the Spa together with clay from the local area in curing diseases of gastrointestinal and hepatolibiar organs, respiratory diseases, and locomotor organs.

The Aranđelovac municipality area is also historically important, since its Village of Orašac (6km from the town) is the birthplace of the First Serbian Uprising against the Turks in 1804. A memorial complex in Marićevića jaruga in Orašac is visited every year by the high country officials of Serbia, since the date when the rebellion started, February 15, is celebrated as the day the modern Serbian state is founded, and Karađorđe Petrović was chosen the leader of the uprising, and later, the country. Near the town is the Monastery of St. Archangel Michael in Brezovac.

The lake encompasses 65 ha, its deepest point is at 22 m, it has fish and it is the town’s favorite holiday place.
