Zadar is a typical Croatian red-roofed, laid-back, Medieval walled town, in northern Dalmatia. A romantic harbour, white stone-paved streets, ancient landmarks, compact size and its quieter nature adds to its appeal.
Zadar's two unique attractions – the sound-and-light spectacle of the Sea Organ and the 'Greetings to the Sun' light installation- are two landmark features. The Sea Organ has perforated stone stairs that descend into the sea, where sea water is pushed through a system of pipes exuding wistfully hypnotic sighs and sounds. 'Greetings to the Sun’ is made of 300 photo-sensitive glass plates that absorb daylight and transforms the harbour-front into a vibrant outdoor dance floor by night.
A highlight of any visit to Zadar is to sit by the water listening to the sounds of the sea organ and watching the sun set. We should also mention its proud claim to fame; Alfred Hitchcock once described Zadar’s sunsets as 'the most beautiful he had ever seen'! Now that's an accolade!
