Spring 2005 saw Zadar gain something absolutely unique: the world's first pipe organ that'\'s played by the sea. It's an art installation designed to let people enjoy the point where urban space meets the sea on Zadar\'s new pier for cruisers on the end of the Old Town peninsula. Simple, elegant stone steps have been built on the quayside, perfect for sitting on. Underneath, 35 pipes end in whistles with openings on the quayside above. The movement of the sea pushes air through, and - depending on the size and velocity of the wave - chords are played. The waves create somewhat random but harmonic sounds.As you sit and listen to the ever-changing sounds created by the sea's energy, you can bask in the sun, enjoy one of Zadar's famous sunsets or enjoy the balmy night air. This is proving to be an extremely popular spot for culture and leisure, bringing new life to a new part of the city.
The project's architect was Mr Nikola Bašiæ, and a team of experts from Zagreb and the island of Murter engineered the organ itself.
