There are two reasons to spend your evening on that seaside. First are the beautiful dawns and the second begins after. Dancing lights and evening colors charms you until the end of life.

This installation, also by architect Nikola Bašić, is a 72-foot-wide disc laid in the sidewalk, made of layers of glass that collect the sun’s energy by day. The solar power created – along with the energy generated by the Sea Organ – is enough to light up Zadar’s waterfront, as well as create a multicolored light show in the pavement from dusk till dawn.

The "greeting to the sun" is a monument dedicated to the sun that symbolizes a contact with nature and light, while the "sea organ" that is next to it (and built by the same architect) symbolizes contact with sound . It is a circle of 22 meters in diameters above the ground, under which various sets of lights have been installed that are illuminated in different colors. It looked like a disco track. The best? See it illuminated at sunset. A nice way to greet the sun until tomorrow.

Playa de Gandia

Esta plataforma circular instalada en el piso y construida por el mismo arquitecto que el del órgano del mar, tiene suficientes panales que permite absorber la energía solar durante el día. El espectáculo comienza cuando el sol se oculta y la plataforma circular emite un espectáculo de luces de diferentes colores gracias a la energía acumulada durante el día. Y no solo esto, ya que con el sobrante de energía solar acumulada da luz a toda el sector costero de la ciudad. Ideal para ir al amanecer y ver la puesta de sol y el comienzo de las luces de la plataforma.
