Under the decision by the Sarajevo Cantonal Assembly held on 25 April 2002, the greater area of the Skakavac Waterfall was recognized as a nature monument.

Skakavac is a 98 m high waterfall located in an exceptionally beautiful landscape. This area features a high degree of biodiversity, with many endemic and relict plants, fungi and animal species. The geological value of this area is in the presence of different bedrock geology, soil types, terrain, hydrographic network, and other factors. 

The greater Skakavac area is notable for geomorphologic phenomena such as rocks, caves, canyons and karst topography.

The vegetation growing on rocks near the waterfall contains rare species such as: Edrianthus jugoslavicus, Crepis cinarica, Dianthus kitaibelii, Sesleria angustifolia, Daphne alpina, Atamatha cretensis, Moehringia bavarica, Potentilla persicin, etc.
