Mi, Petar Prvi, po milosti božijoj i volji narodnoj Kralj Srbije, proglašujemo i objavljujemo svima i svakome, da je Narodna Skupština, sazvana u redovan saziv za 1. oktobar 1913. godine, na sastanku 2. juna 1914. godine, rešila i da smo mi potvrdili i potvrđujemo:

ZAKON O BANJAMA, MINERALNIM I TOPLIM VODAMA

Sve mineralne i tople vode svojina su državna. Njima rukuje i upravlja Ministar Unutrašnjih Dela, preko Sanitetskog Odeljenja. Ako koja mineralna ili topla voda postoji, ili se pronađe na privatnom imanju, država ima prava, da dotično imanje i sva okolna, ako potreba zahteva, otkupi, ili slobodnom pogodbom i kupovinom ili putem eksproprijacije na teret sredstava sanitarnog budžeta.

Pravo na eksploataciju mineralnih i toplih voda u vidu banje ili u ma kom drugom vidu ima samo država. Ako država ne bi mogla ili htela eksploatisati neku mineralnu ili toplu vodu, može, zakonodavnim putem, za izvesno ograničeno vreme, ustupiti drugim telima ili licima.
U širem banjskom rejonu mogu se podizati građevine za stanovanje sopstvenika i bez odobrenja Ministra Unutrašnjih Dela.
Za stanovanje banjskih posetilaca mogu se upotrebiti samo građevine sagrađene po planovima, koje je odobrio ministar Unutrašnjih Dela i Građevina i za koje se u početku banjske sezone sanitetsko-policijskom komisijom utvrdi da su ispravne za stanove.

Ako bi neko u užem ili širem banjskom rejonu izdavao zgrade za stanovanje, za koje je utvrđeno da nisu higijenski ispravne ili koje su namenjene samo za stanovanje sopstvenika, kazniće ga komesar sa 50 do 250 dinara i zgrade zatvoriti.
U užem banjskom rejonu ne sme se gora niti drugo drveće seći, sem kad to odobri banjska uprava, radi ulepšavanja same banje. U širem banjskom rejonu, i na prostoru od dva kilometara od periferije užeg rejona, sme se gora seći samo po odobrenju Ministra Unutrasnjih Dela, a po saslušanju Ministra Narodne Privrede.
Na celom tom prostoru ne sme se puštati stoka, naročito koze, da brste i kvare goru. Ko postupi protivno, kazniće ga policijska vlast dotičnog sreza u kome se banja nalazi sa 10 do 100 dinara u korist Sanitetskog Fonda.

Svaka je banja u pravnom pogledu sastavni deo dotične opšitine, а pored toga ima naročito i uređenje, po odredbama ovog zakona.

U svakoj banji postoji stalna banjska uprava. Glavna dužnost banjske uprave je:

  • Staranje da se svi banjski poslovi vrše na vreme;
  • Da predlaže Ministru Unutrašnjih Dela šta je sve potrebno za unapređenje banje;
  • Da se za vreme banjskih sezona stara o redu u banji; i,
  • Da vrši sve poslove po odredbama ovog zakona i pravilnika.

Prihodi banjski su:

  • Prihodi od državnih dobara (kafane, gostionice, zgrade za stanovanje itd.);
  • Prihodi od kurtakse;
  • Prihodi po specijalnim zakonima i odredbama kao: kasapska i dućanska arenda i ostali prihodi po ovome ili drugom kom zakonu;
  • Prihodi od naplate za upotrebu ustanova postrojenja koja pripadaju državi (kupatila, masaža itd.);
  • Prihodi od kazni i drugih nepredviđenih prihoda.

Slika kralja Petra I

I, Petar The First, by God’s mегсу and the nation’s will, King of Serbia, declare and announce to all that the National Parliament, assembled at a regular summon for Oct. 1,1913, at the meeting held on June 2,1914, settled it and that I confirmed and am confirming:

THE LAW ON SPAS, MINERAL AND HOT WATER SPRINGS

All mineral and hot spring water are public property. Тhеу are managed and controlled by the Minister of Internal Affairs, through the Sanitary Department. If аnу mineral or hot water exists, or is discovered on private property, the Government has the right to, if necessary, purchase the land at hand and that in the vicinity, by free agreement and purchase or by expropriation at the expense of the sanitary budget,

Only the Government has the right to exploit mineral and hot water in the form of a spa or in аnу other form. If the Government is unable or unwilling to exploit a mineral or hot water spring, it may, by law, for a certain limited time, consign it to other parties or persons.
In the broader spa region, apartment buildings for the proprietor may be built without the approval of the Minister of Internal Affairs. For the habitation of spa visitors, only buildings built based on plans approved by the Minister of Internal Affairs and Structures may be used, which are inspected at the beginning of the spa season by the sanitary police commission and established to be in order for apartments.
If someone in a narrower or broader spa region rents out buildings, which have been established as not in hygienic order, or ones that are intended only for proprietors’ residence, he will be fined by the Commissary with 50 to 250 din and his buildings will be closed.
In the narrower spa region, forest or other trees may not be cut down, unless approved by the Spa Administration, for the sake of beautifying the Spa itself. In the broader spa region, and on a territory of two kilometers from the periphегу of the narrower region, forest may only be cut down with approval from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and with an audience of the Minister of National Есопоту.
Cattle mау not use that area, especially not goats, they mау not graze and damage the forest. He who violates these regulations will be fined by the Police authority of the Canton in which the spa is located with 10 to 100 dinars for the benefit of the Sanitary Fund.

Every spa is, in the legal sense, an essential part of a respective municipality, but besides that it has also has a special arrangement, based on the regulations of this law.
Every spa has a permanent spa administration. The spa’s administration’s main task is:

  • Making sure all spa affairs are done on time;
  • To propose to the Minister of Internal Affairs all that is required for spa advancement;
  • To be responsible for the order in the spa during spa seasons; and,
  • To perform all the work based on the regulations of this law and rulebook.

    Spa incomes are:

  • Incomes from public goods (taverns, inns, apartment buildings etc);
  • Incomes from treatment tolls;
  • Incomes based on special laws and regulations such as: butchery and store tenure and other incomes based on this law or some other law;
  • Incomes from payment for the use of apartments facilities that belong to the Government (bathrooms, massages etc);
  • Incomes from fines and other unplanned incomes.
