Spring 2005 saw Zadar gain something absolutely unique: the worlds first pipe organ thats played by the sea. Its an art installation designed to let people enjoy the point where urban space meets the sea on Zadars 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. As you sit and listen to the ever-changing sounds created by the seas energy, you can bask in the sun, enjoy one of Zadars 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 projects architect was Nikola Bašić, and a team of experts from Zagreb and the island of Murter engineered the organ itself.
