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.

  • I like organ music, is something original but it does not seem the best sunset I have seen the sun salutation is in repair? Not worked today 10 Oct 2018... and I think that made it less special

  • Sea Organ of course is a must if you are in Zadar... I noticed that many people goes to the edge even lie down for better hearing the music. But... The clever designer placed some concrete seats which...  more »
  • Unfortunately, there are always hordes of Crusaders and Guild on the spot. It has almost no chance to see the organ as an individual tourist and hear

  • We weren't impressed by the sea organ. There was barely any sound, even though we stayed for half an hour several boats passed by and made waves. We were there on a beautiful evening at sunset and it is worth going to the tip of the peninsula at least for the view.
  • This is the sea organ. Not a room or restaurant. It's a really nice spot. You can sit here for hours reading a book and listening to the strange and hypnotic sounds of the sea orghan. Also an amazing spot to sit and watch the sunset. Check the pics ^
  • Not to be missed in Zadar. A place where the city and the sea blend. A perfect view of the islands and beautiful view of western part of Zadar. Although constantly visited by tourists it has enough space to accomodate them all. Also the buses can reach it and turn on a well made bus round turn. A bar is close but a bit pricey
  • one of the most beautiful country I visited. oeople are awesome. I was surprised for their hospitality. foods are also very good. sea food are the best to appetites.
  • An interesting case about how can people create an attraction having nothing in the begining. It was just a 10 metres long part of promenade with nothing to look at except islands and sea. However, now lots of tourists come to this place even during the hottest summer days because there's an attraction: music instrument designed for sea. Have you got interested? Actually, nothing special, but worth coming to take a look how to design a place where tourist would defenetly come.
