Sea Organ in Zadar, Croatia
Sea Organ in Zadar, Croatia
In the year of 2005 the sea organ was built on the cascading waterside promenade of Zadar. It is made up of 35 tubes with a total length of around 70 meters. It was constructed by the stonemason and architect Nikola Bašic.
The sea water flows with its waves into the tubes and streams out after that. As a result the air in the tubes is agitated and pressed into the pipes in which each tube ends up. The stream of air through the pipes create sounds in various pitches and sound levels.
The sounds are to be heard from litle holes in the sidewalk of the promenade and too from holes in the steps at the sea side.
