Jankovac, Skakavac waterfall

The famous Slavonian mountain resort Jankovac is located in the Papuk nature park.

It is a romantic mountain valley located at an altitude of 475 meters, which is 500 meters long and 200 meters wide. In the 18th century, there was a settlement of German glassmakers who worked in the glazer’s shop “Skakavac”, named after the Skakavac waterfall.

The forest park Jankovac is beautiful at each season of the year in its own way and its biggest speciality is the nature. The natural beauties of this part of the UNESCO Geopark Papuk are incredible and you cannot know what is more beatiful at what time of the year: the forests, the lakes or the rocks.

When I climbed upon these rocks, my soul could not feast enough on the view on this valley… This place I chose for my viewpoint of the upcoming ages. – words of the Croatian Count Josip Janković
