Sea Organ & Greetings to the Sun - Zadar
Zadar is a proud owner of a unique blend of architecture and music, the world-famous Sea Organ, which is located right next to another modern installation, the Greeting to the Sun. The sounds that the Sea Organ produces are a result of the release of sea energy, or rather waves and tides.
The Sea Organ was broken off and then gently shaped and returned to the sea. It stretches out over about seventy meters of the Zadar waterfront. When the most beautiful sunset illuminates the waterfront, the game of lights by the Greeting to the Sun accompanies the rhythm of the waves and the sounds of the Sea Organ.
Royal Wineyards - Petrcane, Zadar
On the picturesque hills above Petrčane and Punta Skala, the vineyards were erected in extreme conditions, on the rocky soil with an optimum slope towards the southwest and with a constant circulation of the air, from the sea and as well from Velebit.
Visit our unique location, choose your finest selection of vine and cheese and admire the sea view directly from the vineyards.
Paklenica National Park - Starigrad, Zadar
Part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. Paklenica consists of mountain peaks, forests, canyons, lakes, and rivers. It's ideal for climbers, adventurers, and romantic daydreamers.
Due to its unique natural features, magnificent forests, and extraordinary geomorphologic structures, the area of Velika and Mala Paklenica was proclaimed a national park in 1949.
Golubinka Cave - Dugi otok, Zadar
The Golubinka Cave is situated on the southern shores of Dugi Otok, west of the Brbinjšćica Bay, where it is also best to anchor the boat even when the sea is calm. It is characterized by a long entry, which can be passed by swimming or a very narrow boat, but it is recommended that you head down to the bottom of the cave swimming, equipped with a diving mask.
Thanks to the natural light that comes through the open ceiling at its far end, an abundance of underwater fauna awaits you in the seemingly karst tunnel which opens into a lovely small hall at its end. Sail into an oasis of peace.
