Sun Salutation and Sea Organ
Located on the western end of the Riva, Zadar's seafront walkway, the Sea Organ and the nearby Sun Salutation are must-see attractions both created by architect Nikola Bašić. The Sea Organ is composed of stairs extending into the sea which are fitted with pipes and whistles that moan and sing with the surf. The Sun Salutation is a set of 300 glass plates in the shape of a circle under which lies a series of sun-activated electric modules. These two pieces use sound and light respectively to harness the power of nature to make living art; they've both become symbols of Zadar, which, like Venice to which it once belonged, has deep ties to the sea that surrounds it as well as to the sky overhead.
