One of the most beautiful places to visit in Serbia is Prskalo Waterfall. Located in Eastern Serbia, on the mountain Kuchaj. 

This natural wonder consists of a dome created from Tufa layers [1]. From these Tufa layers water gushes (or sprays) down through narrow channels. Because of this spraying water the waterfall is called Prskalo (the name derived from the Serbian word prskati which means to spray).

The Prskalo Waterfall is one of the most unusual and beautiful creations of nature. 

To get to the Prskalo Waterfall you will have to pass through a forest road that is somewhat difficult to navigate. But, at the end of your journey you will be rewarded with one of the most beautiful views in the world.

Near the waterfall (or 50 meters away from it), lies a spring of the river Nekudovo.
