Zlatibor is located in the northern part of the Stari Vlah region, a historical border region between Raška, Herzegovina and Bosnia. The hill called Cigla near the village of Jablanica still has some borderline markings of the Kingdom of Serbia, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire. In the Middle Ages, Zlatibor was known as Rujno, a župa that was part of Raška. The name Zlatibor started to be used in the 18th century, but its etymology is uncertain. It probably stems from the Serbian words zlatni (golden) and bor (pine) — a particular type of a pine originates from the mountain, whose Latin name is Pinus silvestris variegata zlatiborica, and today is endangered.

The town's original name was Kulaševac. In August 1893, King Aleksandar Obrenović came to Kulaševac, and built a fountain called Kraljeva česma (The King's Fountain). In honor of King Aleksandar's contribution, Kulaševac was renamed to Kraljeva Voda (The King's Water). In 1903, King Petar Karađorđević I built a villa on the site, helping strengthen the growing trend of turning the slopes surrounding Kraljeva Voda into a vacation spot. After World War II, Kraljeva Voda was renamed to Partizanske Vode in 1946 (The Partisans' Waters). The name change was out of respect for wounded Zlatibor Partisans who were murdered by Nazi Germany's army in November and December 1941, while they were recovering in the main hospital of Palisad in the northern part of Kraljeve Vode. In 1995, Partizanske Vode was changed to Zlatibor, recognizing the mountain upon which the town rests. 1893 was a common year starting on Sunday (see link for calendar). ...

Tourists were often confused, not knowing whether Zlatibor was a mountain or a town. Thus, the town's name has been changed to Kraljeve Vode (The King's Waters), its present name today, observing the history of King Aleksandar's and King Petar's visits to Zlatibor Mountain.
