Zadar is growing in popularity. We recommend combining a couple of nights in Zadar with a Croatia island-hopping cruise.
The Sea Organ is one of Zadar’s most popular attractions. The installation creates music from the sea. As the waves ebb and flow they push air through the 35 underwater pipes that stretch across 70m. The enchanting harmonious musical sounds can be heard all the way along the Riva promenade.
The Sea Organ is the creation of Croatian architect Nikola Bašićis. It combines modern design and nature to create a unique attraction. Take a front row seat on the marble steps to enjoy the views and accompanying sounds at sunset.
The Gold & Silver Museum is home to a collection of priceless treasures that have been preserved by the Benedictine nuns since WWII. The ancient exhibits include delicately embroidered fabrics that are embellished with golden threads, made by local nuns. The museum is housed in the Benedictine Convent of St. Mary.
