Croatia: Zadar

After Rijeka we went to another coastal city: Zadar. Zadar had better preserved medieval (and older) architecture. We explored the beautiful old town.

Vestiges of Roman ruins aligned outside the archaeology museum:


Nice colors:


But what I liked the most was the sea:


Plus there is the awesome Sea Organ made by Nikola Bašić. The waves crash against tubes and make music - bigger waves change the resonance and so forth. It's so peaceful to listen to.

This is what one of the openings looks like:


And here's another art installation (by the same artist) right next to the Sea Organ:


This one is designed to be viewed at night, but I think it's pretty cool during the day too. The panels glitter like the sea behind them.

Bye, bye Zadar!
