About the destination:

The Greeting to the Sun and Sea Organ have put Zadar on a map of must-see places in Croatia, adding a modern notary to the 3000-year-old city.

The Greeting to the Sun is the monument dedicated to the Sun. It consists of 300 multi-layered glass plates, with the photo-voltage solar modules underneath which create magic once the sun sets down.

Nearby you can find the Sea organ, an architectural experimental musical instrument which plays music by way of sea waves and tubes located underneath a set of large marble steps. It’s one of the places where the residents and tourists come to relax during sunny days.

Zadar has continuously existed as a settlement since the pre-ancient times and for centuries it was the capital of Dalmatia. Today it is the fifth largest city in Croatia offering a pleasant life for locals as well as for tourists.

The city’s main street is Kalelarga, where you’ll find numerous shops.

From Zadar, visit national parks Plitvice Lakes, Paklenica, Kornati islands and Krka waterfalls.

Make it possible in your schedule to visit Galešnjak – an island in the shape of the heart, but also the birthplace of the greatest Croatian-born scientist Nikola Tesla.

Summer events such as the Zadar Marathon, the international festival of contemporary theatre  Zadar snova and the nearby music festivals in Tisno and Obonjan, have turned Zadar into a  desirable destination for young people in the last decade.
