The Eye of Skakavica is situated near Vusanje village in Ropojan, 1,5 km away from Skakavica waterfall. This well is of karst origin at 1010 m.a.s.l. It is circular in shape and the waters constantly boil like in the pot. The Eye is one of the strongest in the lower Prokletije. It is 30 meters long and 25 meters wide. Towards the centre, the depth grows rapidly and during the highest water level it reaches 11,5 meters. During very hot summers, especially in August and September, the generosity of Oko (Eye) reduces. The waters retreat towards the deepest part of the well and are peaceful so there is no overflow.
