According to the old Bulgarian tradition drinking fountains were built by order from wealthy people. They do it free of charge, selflessly and with the sole desire to leave something for the coming generations.
A long time ago every district in town had their own drinking fountain – Ic kurknal, Sulin, Çerkez mahalleleri, Sheremetsa, Teke Mahlesi. Then, the water of most of those was declared unfit to drink (nitrates were discovered). Some are still in their place. Drinking fountains have been built for centuries and even today. They are named after either the place where they are built, or after the people who built them.
