A round glass panel at Zadar port, The Greeting to the Sun uses solar rays to create changing patterns of light and colors following the sunset. Invented by famous Croatian architect Nikola Bašić, the attraction is one of a group of creations dedicated to the unity of nature and science. Check out this 22 m (72 ft) spectacle, located on a hilltop that happens to be one of the town's prime sunset locations. The area becomes an open-air museum at night, featuring other panels that represent the rest of the solar system coupled with sound shows produced by sea waves.
