Morske Orgulje (Sea Organ), Zadar

4.6
At Morske Orgulje (Sea Organ), see the world's first musical pipe organs played by the sea. Descend the white marble steps leading to the water and enjoy the never-ending concert. Waves and wind interact with 35 tubes tuned to create random, harmonic sounds. In 2005 Nikola Basic designed the organ, which recently received the European Prize for Urban Public Space. From here gaze at a stunning sunset on the ocean. Alfred Hitchcock once visited and did the same.

  • This is an 'organ' that just uses holes and pipes that water swishes through and makes 'music' - weird  more »
  • Definitely worth visiting, a romantic place and very relaxing. If you switch from Zadar you cannot but visit it

  • The sea organ is the iron point of sightseeing during their stay in Zadar. This unusual installation will surely surprise many a tourist, who decides to sit down on the stairs and listen to in the Adriatic Sea to admire one of the most beautiful sunsets.

  • A must visit place, particularly for artists and soul seekers! Packed during the daytime. Highly recommend a hitting the Sea Organ for Sunrise - it's empty and serene. Perfect yoga stop! Visiting at different times of the day was really interesting too as the waves created completely different harmonies!
  • Such a lovely place to grab a beer and watch the sun set whilst listening to the sea organ. Then head over to the moment of the sun and watch people try and figure out how the lights work. (hint, your weight / movement doesn't trigger it).
  • Magical place! Spent hours watching waves, sunsets and listening to relaxing sounds of organs❤️
  • Went there twice. The first time there was crowds of chattering tourist so you couldn't really hear. Next time was better. Try to place you in the middle of the pipes.
  • Great views. I was there at sunset. It was great. Like a date :). If you are in Croatia you have to see it. And this sound. Amazing. True miracle of modern technology.

Where to stay in Zadar

If proximity to the sights in Zadar is your priority, opt to stay in the old town, a compact area packed with historical buildings. Although this area offers few budget-friendly hotel rooms, you can choose from affordable hostels within walking distance of the city's main sights. Zadar's resort hotels tend to hug the coastline, a short drive out of the city. Book ahead if you want to stay there, or stop by the city's tourist office for a list of private rooms closer to the city center.
