Pliva is a waterfall located in the city of Jajce, in central Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The waterfall is a large tuft, also known as the travertine barrier, which forms a cascade over 22 meters on the river Pliva, in a narrow karst zone, which follows the course of Pliva, withdrawn into a contact zone with flysch and limestone. It was 30 meters high, but after the earthquake during the Bosnian war and the attacks on the power plant away from the river, the area was flooded and now the waterfall is 22 meters high.
The Pliva waterfall is unique as it is in the center of the city and is considered one of the most beautiful in the world.
