On the corner of the tip of the peninsula that forms the ancient city of Zadar, you will find an area with this Greeting to the Sun sculpture/ park/element (i'm not sure what to call it). Inlaid in the concrete surface is a giant solar...More

Obviously the best time to embrace this is after the sun goes down it is quite a unique experience I should also add that it is next to the sea organ

You can't greet the sun here. It sets in this direction and you cannot see it rise from here so have no idea why there is a listing for this

We visited the greeting to the sun both at day and night. I would highly recommend going at night time as it lights up. Also at night there’s a beautiful view of the coast which is very romantic.

If you mean the Zadar (Gazenica) ferry port you could use Uber.
