Morske Orgulje (Sea Organ), Zadar

(3,400+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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. Put Morske Orgulje (Sea Organ) at the forefront of your travel plans using our Zadar vacation trip planner.

  • A series of organ pipes Set in the water with holes in the pathway to let the music out. When boats go by the sounds change, lovely seeing the children lying on the path with their ears on the holes. ...  more »
  • Gusty winds gave us a beautiful serenade through the acoustic holes in concrete steps at the harbor! We loved the the sea organ installation.  more »
  • Something that you will not see at any other places- music, played by the sea itself. Beautiful and calming, especially during sun set :)  more »

  • I have been here a few times. Great in winter with a stormy sea. You can really hear the sounds on the other side of the old town! Such a fascinating piece of sound art. We'll worth visiting.
  • Very cool experience. Go later in the day when the water is choppy. We went in the morning and barely heard anything and were really disappointed. We came back for sunset and it much better! The Salutation to the Sun is right there as well so either go at night or at sunset and stick around. There is a surprising lack of anything there so if you want food/drink, get it and bring for a picnic.
  • Very unique and fun musical instrument build into the sea wall. The wind creates a nice sound as it passes through the organ. Must see if you're visiting Zadar.
  • They say that Zadar has one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world (Alfred Hitchcock), but this contemporary feat of engineering and architecture is a great adition to the old town. If you come at night after a sunny day you can marvel in the beautiful display of the Sun installation. But whenever you come you can listen to the sea making peaceful sounds while hitting the organ.
  • Sound comes from the sea water moving through the organ pipes. Interesting and unique experience. The sounds invite to meditation but can become a bit annoying after a while.
