Concrete pieces are placed along walkway along the edge of the sea and drilled with holes into resonating chambers.Waves create music when struck into it. It is calming natural music with light show in background(during the night). When waves are high ,music becomes much stronger,something like passing from Vivaldi onto Wagner :P

Something you don't see many times in touristic destinations. Organ that are powerd by the sea, making beautiful, peaceful, relaxing atmosfere when sea is rather calm, and furios rapsody when the waves are high and the wind is strong.

The waves create music when meeting the beach, i.t. special tubes under the embankment. The bigger the waves, the more often they come, the better the music. It`s rather rythmical and even hypnotizing a bit, in general sounds really pleasant. Many people over there in good weather, swimming in the water (in summer). Would recommend for visiting!

The concrete of the walkway along the edge of the sea is drilled with holes into resonating chambers, so that the lapping of the waves forces air through these holes to produce sound. Not only is it relaxing to sit and listen, many children were intrigued at how the sound was produced and experimented with the holes in the surface... More

One of my favorite place in Zadar. We spent hours walking, sitting and soaking our feet in the sea with the hypnotizing sound of the Sea Organ in the background. The sound of the waves pushing the air in the pipes hidden in the steps is a captivating experience.

The sea organ is a great idea and a work of art in itself. When roaming the city, it's a great place for a break to sit and listen to the sounds the waves make - and all for free. Don't miss it when you're in Zadar!

The sea organ was the highlight of the trip to Zadar. The city itself is spotless and beautiful but the view of the sea and the magical "orchestra" sound it makes through the pipes is such a captivating experience that no one in our group wanted to leave!

This is such a simple idea that works so well. The sounds the organ makes can be haunting and add an atmosphere to the area that makes you want to stop and enjoy the experience.

The architect was brilliant to think of that.Thats why he won the first price at Bienale in Venice.No comment to sit there and listen to the sea specially at the sunset.Don't miss it.
