Zadar attractions

Zadar attractions and what you must see and visit.

Sea Organ

1. Sea Organ is located in the western part of the Zadar’s seafront. Stone steps stretch for about 70 meters along the coastline, which have embedded pipes that produce sounds and amplify it throughout the promenade.

The instrument has 7 clusters, each consisting of 5 tones and the author of the music is the unpredictable sea. „Monument to the sun“ is composed of 300 glass panels aligned in a circle. Underneath those panels are located solar modules that establish the communication with nature while creating beautiful rhythmic light shows resembling the looks of wave movement and sea organ.

2. Roman Forum in Zadar is, by all measures, one of the largest in Adriatic. It was the center of public life in the past. The most famous street in Zadar – Kalelarga starts at the Large Square (Platea Magna). For citizens of Zadar, this street has always been the symbol of their city, the place for gathering and hanging out.

We’d also recommend visiting Proveditor´s Palace – located in the center of the city’s core, then Square „Pet bunara“ – water tanks with five decorative wreaths.

This contemporarily equipped cultural-historical complex extends on 2000 square meters and units at the same time a museum space, an atrium, concert hall, halls for temporary exhibitions, video gallery, a multimedia hall, and also rooms for educational and creational workshops.
