Stop At: Sea Organ (Morske Orgulje)

A sound art object and experimental musical instrument that creates lovely chimed tunes using only the rolling power of sea waves. The installation looks like a series of broad steps leading down into the sea hiding clever engineering beneath their surface. Nikola Bašić, a renowned architect, has devised an ingenious system of resonant chambers that produces syncopated ever-changing tunes which soothe and excite the minds of countless amazed visitors as they chill and linger on the Riva for hours just to hear that dreamlike sound once again before they leave.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At:

The replica of the Egyptian Sphinx in Zadar had the relief of an eagle on its chest, and instead of paws it had fingers, with which it was once holding a big sword to protect a little fishpond in the shape of a shell. In 1918, devastated by the pain of the premature loss of his wife, Attilia, the famous Zadar citizen Giovanni Smirich had a Sphinx built of concrete in her honour. It is located in the part of the city called Brodarica, within the grounds of Villa Attilia and the park in the Maestral bay, and according to a legend, since it was built in memory of a beloved woman, it is said that it grants love wishes.
