Lazarevac has a very pleasant continental climate due to the nearby mountains: Rudnik, Kosmaj, Venčac and Bukulja. On the outskirts of the town flows the Kolubara river, where the famous Kolubara battle took place, one of the greatest victories of the Serbian army in WW1.
At the hillside near Lazarevac, in 1938, the Church of St Dimitri (Crkva svetomučenika Dimitrija) was erected as a memorial to the Serbian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers killed in the battle of Kolubara, so that their remains could be interred in the Ossuary within the crypt of this church.
In the center of Lazarevac, there is a monument dedicated to the Serbian warrior, erected on the 80th anniversary of the Kolubara battle. Among the monuments of historical value, there is a Monument to Prince Stanoje Mihailović, one of the first victims of the Slaughter of the Knezes (Seča Knezova, Knez being a Prince or a Duke), and the Memorial to Uzun-Mirko, one of the heroes of the First Serbian Uprising.
A stone complex called Kamengrad is the place where cultural and folklore events are held. The complex has four gates and a stage surrounded by a wall decorated with ethnic motives.
Many tourist attractions, like the Lazarevac chalets, Lake Očaga, ethnic village "Babina reka", Kolubara basin etc. can be found on the territory of the Lazarevac municipality.
