I waiting until it turned dark bit it's worth it. I've never seen lights like it and it's the only city that does it. The heat from the sun lights up the ground next to the ocean and the water at the side of the brick wall make music. A must see in the old town don't leave Zadar without... More

I took some great pictures here. went at night, sat there like a half an hour and took fotos of all the colors portrayed by the lights. Although I was alone on the trip, this place really made me smile. Some street magicians or street musicians often start doing some tricks or playing some music on the center of the... More

Here you can see an amazing sunset and at the same time listen to the incredible music of the Sea organ. These are pipes built over the seabed and the movement of the water creates the music.

Perfect match of engineering technology to make Nature look and sound amazing, we went mid August, so we had every day the most spectacular Sunsets. Try to arrive (if traveling in the summer) between 6 and 6:30 to get a good spot for the sunset that usually happen around 7:20 and stay to enjoy the multicoloured circular platform that lights...

The sun salutation of Zadar designed by architect Nikola Bašić, is an urban installation and a real work of art! It consists of a circle whose diameter is 22 meters and is formed by 300 of multi-layer glass plates embedded in the pavement. At sunset, the stored energy is released in the form of color. Rays of light here create... More

Visited. Saluto Al Sole and the sea organs located along the Adriatic Sea are perfect match. Saluto Al Sole is a bluish circular solar system which absorbed solar energy during the day time. The sea organ are tubes built under the marvle steps built along the Adriatic Sea. When the sea waves hit on them it created music. After sunset,... More

As the title suggests, it's worth the visit as you're probably going to want to see the natural beauty that is along this route. However the attraction itself is not on the bucket list.

This is a duplicate listing for "The Greeting to the Sun" only in Italian. Maybe it's better in Italian. Or maybe it's better wearing sun glasses. The silly part is that it doesn't look like anything until the sun goes away and it's dark out.
