Among the main attractions of the city of Zadar there are certainly ancient churches and monuments, but also recent structures that have quickly become the symbol of the city, such as the Sea Organ and the Greeting to the Sun, but also the main squares of the city, the Forum , the port and the Market:
Marine Organ - is located in the final part of the western shore of Zara and is visible from the sea due to its stairway shape that descends into the sea.
The steps extend for about 70 m on the waterfront and on the lowest step, below the sea level there are 35 organ pipes of different length and diameter - on the reeds there are "labiums" or whistles that play and in the part there are the holes from which the sounds created by the air pushed by the sea come out. The organ is built to a design by architect Nikola Basic with the assistance of several experts - Professor Vladimir Androc, expert in hydraulics, Goran Jezina builder of rods, Heferer laboratory specializing in organ construction has taken care of the construction of 35 labium for each barrel of organ, granted by the Ivica Stamac of Zagreb.
Greeting to the sun- on the Istarska Obala road, at the end of the Zadar peninsula and near the Marine Organ, there is the Greeting to the Sun by the architect Nikola Basic, formed by 300 multilayer mirrors positioned at street level to form a circle of 22 m of diameter and below the glass surface there are photovoltaic panels. At sunset the lights installed in the structure light up and, following a fixed pattern, produce light effects that follow the rhythm of the waves and the music of the Sea Organ. But the Greeting to the Sun is not only a fascinating work of art: it is a real solar plant that produces 46500 kWh per year and that powers the lighting of the Zara seafront! Along the
Narodni Trg or Piazza del Popolo- it has been the heart of Zadar's public life since the Renaissance and is located at the point where the "platea magna" or medieval piazza stood. In the Piazza there were also the town Loggia and the Church of San Pietro, destroyed by the authorities during the Venetian rule in the fifteenth century. In the 16th century the Loggia was rebuilt together with the building of the City Guard with the clock tower: the Guard located on the north side of the square is the work of the Venetian architect Michele Sanmicheli and is in late Renaissance style. The oroglogio tower was built at the beginning of the 19th century with a stone barrier where the holes for the cannons open; once the building housed a section of the National Ethnographic Museum.
In the southern part of Piazza del Popolo there is the Loggia dating back to the 13th century and rebuilt in 1565: once it was the court, the council chamber and the city library. Damaged during the Second World War it was restored and today serves as a space for exhibitions and hosts events such as the Triennale on men and the sea and the Triennial of Croatian Contemporary Art "Sala Blu".
The town hall stands in place of the Baroque Palazzo Pedrini, while on the east side of the square is Palazzo Ghirardini in Romanesque style.
Piazza Pet Bunara (5 wells)- it is located between the Medieval Walls of the city and the Grimani Bastion, where there is also the oldest park of Zara: the square hosts 5 wells lined up one behind the other built in the XVI century when the Venetians helped the city against a Turkish siege building a large water cistern with 5 ornamental wells.
The Captain's Towerpentagonal in shape that leans against the city walls is the only survivor of a system of 10 towers placed on the edge of the walls: it owes its name to the nearby residence of the Captain of the city and was built by the Venetians to strengthen the defenses against the Turkish attacks . Today it hosts an exhibition and a lookout with a view of the city. Wells are no longer used, but the square has become a popular place where concerts are held and events are organized, as well as one of the most romantic corners of Zadar ...
Regina Jelena Madije Park - the park is named after Queen Jelena Madije , and is located at the top of the Grimaldi bastion: it is the oldest park in the city, created by the Austrian commander Baron Franz Ludwig von Welden in 1829.
