At Sea Organ (Morske Orgulje), 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.

  • A fun idea and great memory. Sunset in the summer made for a great swim in the sea and memorable Zadar “must do”!  more »
  • A unique installation where the sea waves are transformed into music notes. Especially captivating in rough weather.  more »
  • Been there for the first time. Was very susprised with it. A beautiful music coming from the waves. It was very noisy when the local Jadrolinija ferry boat passed near by at the sea,so the waves...  more »

  • Beautiful place to visit when in Croatia. Very relaxing to just sit and enjoy the sounds with a picnic or gelato. Absolutely fascinating how someone had the idea to create this so the ocean can make such beautiful sounds.
  • I should have been here at sunset. It was too hot and dazzling to enjoy. If I come here again, I will see the sunset sea organ. 낮에개뜨거워
  • Really amazing place. We arrived right on time to watch a beautiful sunset. The only bummer part is that as it is a turistic place, sometimes people are too loud and you can not hear the organ playing as the waves come. But I still enjoyed it and would totally recommend a stop there
  • One of the most awesome amazing places I've ever set up foot. In love with it really. It played in A minor for me ?
  • Very innovative architecture that makes sound with the sea waves. Recommend to go in the mornings to have a better experience. Sunset is also really beautiful. The solar panels on the floor capture energy and supply electricity to the entire water front of Zadar old town. And in the evening depending on how much energy it generated the whole day, the LED lights in solar panels perform a dance show.
