...really looks quite similar to Skok waterfall in High Tatras! Even the name is almost the same:-)

Re: It...

Where is that waterfall in the Tatras?



You're right, the river Skakavica is called that way because it "jumps" a lot. The word "skok" (or "vodoskok") is sometimes used for smaller waterfalls.

Re: It...

This waterfall is in Mlynicka Dolina.It's little lower: about 25 meters.And the name is because of the fact that in spring when the snow melts and there's a lot of water it "jumps" in the upper part of the waterfall.
