In antiquity, the then Roman-town was called Taliata.

From its founding, Donji Milanovac city was moved twice. Milanovac was founded in the 19th century on its original site on an island in the Danube River. In 1830, due to frequent flooding, Prince Miloš ordered the city moved to the right bank. It became the first city in Serbia built by city planning. After construction of hydroelectric power station ?erdap I in 1970, the city was moved again to its present location. Near this site is the 8000 year old Mesolithic settlement, Lepenski Vir.
