Traditional jumping from the waterfall is an international event. Last, the cascades from the Pliva River creates a magnificent 17 meter high waterfall, which makes Jajce different from any other city in the world. Jajce is the only city with a natural waterfall directly in its center.
At the point where the river Pliva flows into Vrbas, below the waterfall, there is a 10 m deep pool, which is an additional safety to competitors in the event.
Each year the competition features roughly 30 professional divers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatian, Serbia, Montenegro and Slovenia. The three best jumps, evaluated by an expert commission, receive trophies and appropriate rewards.
Jumping from waterfall takes place on the first weekend in August.
The organizer of this event is the Agency for cultural and historical and natural heritage and development of tourism potentials of Jajce, and the general sponsor of the municipality of Jajce.
