  • Wonderful hike through the nature reserve Skakavac waterfall. A lot of guides that you can ask for directions even if signage is. Scenery and great hiking trails. Absolutely nothing to be missed when you are in Sarajevo. Bring water on hot days. Are not buying anything in the nature reserve. Staff very knowledgeable about plants, and wildlife.

  • One of the most beautiful places around Sarajevo. The route is very easy, anyone can reach it, but prepare a lot of food and drinks because it is fairly long. I recommend going there on foot to get the whole experience of being in nature, far from the civilization.
  • To be honest, the Waterfall is pretty high, but it's not abundant with water. But that's OK. I like the way and paths over the waterfall, where it's possible to see the spring of the stream. The maintaining service (if such some exists) don't do much to promote the tourism of this attraction. The bridge under the waterfall is in a bad condition and the approach is covered with the grass, that should be mowed. I hope that one day this pearl will glow as it deserves :/
  • Once it has snowed, start walking at about 15:00 from the cottage bellow the park. You will get there at 16:00, and to the top of the waterfall at 16:30. Then you get the magic hour, and you will see this beatiful sunset.
  • We drove to the Skakavac waterfall and the road leading to it was not paved and uphill and hence we parked our car way ahead of our destination increasing our hike distance to more than 10kms. It was totally worth the climb as we had a great waterfall and it was completely empty with no/limited tourists around. We reached the falls itself by 11:30 AM and took us around 2hrs of hiking to reach it. There is a small coffee place near to the top where an old couple makes the perfect bosnian traditional coffee which was the best coffee i had ever had in Bosnia.
  • Walked 8 hours there and back it was a great trek! #BeatTheGrind
