The paper identifies and describes a legend about Vlatko Vuković, a duke of the Kingdom of Bosnia, and his army taking Communion on their way to the field of Kosovo in 1389. The legend is preserved in Užička Crna Gora, a region in West Serbia which is located north-east of the town of Užice. The relationship between this legend and certain archaeological locations which have still not been completely researched is explained. In addition to this, we analyse the fact that, regardlessof legend's historical underprinnings, it was recorded in an area through which Vlatko Vuković's army probably did not pass on its way to Kosovo polje in 1389
