Interesting musical instrument that is guided by the waves of the sea. Produces a deep guttural sound and can be quite rhythmical around high tide. I got to say it was a little underwhelming considering everything I had heard about it though.

The sea organ at Zadar is an amazing structure built into the foreshore in 2004. You can sit on the steps admiring the view of the sea and listening to the organ - gentle on a calm day but if a large craft goes past it becomes almost deafening with sounds produced entirely by the waves.

The Sea organ is an architectural sound art object and an experimental musical instrument, which plays music by way of sea waves and tubes located underneath a set of large marble steps. Sometimes when the sea is calm you will have to wait for a passing boat to get any real sound.

Local from Zadar

It was the most beautiful few years ago, when it was new. Now half of the lights actually does not work.

But still it is very beautiful to hear the sounds of the sea and enjoy the sunset.

Created by architect Nikola Bašić, the Sea Organ is a series of pipes set in the pavement of Zadar’s seafront promenade. A haunting music is created by the movement of the waves below.

A beautiful place to take in the essence of Zadar. Watch as fisherman work and the Sea Organ sings you the song of the Adriatic.

An art piece built on the waterfront in Zadar. When enters the "organ", a deep, harmonious chord emanates from the round holes on the pavement. It's a great place to sit down, relax and listen to the sea.

Dejate llevar por el sonido musical del mar, visitando el original órgano marino de Zadar. Está situado en un extremo de la península donde se encuentra el casco antiguo, en una ubicación privilegiada respecto de uno de los mejores atardeceres de la costa croata. Este es uno de los momentos del día en que conviene acercarse aquí y, aunque habrá mucha gente, vale la pena.

Genial invento en la costa de Zadar. Diseñado por un arquitecto local, se trata de unas escalinatas en la orilla del agua con orificios, que permiten que cuando las olas chocan contra la plataforma hagan diferentes sonidos, muy similares a los que produce un órgano. Te puedes pasar aquí mas de una hora escuchando como el mar pone música en tus oídos. Cuanto mas marea mejor es el ruido que emite este órgano marino.
