Another example:

Кіт стрибає на столі [Loc]. The cat is jumping on the table (it's on the table and jumping there continuously)

Кіт стрибає на стіл [Acc]. The cat is jumping onto the table (it's jumping from somewhere else in one go)

Locative is for when you're asking "where?" (де?) and this here is Accusative for "to where?" (куди?)
