The stone stairs stretch to seventy meters of shore, divided into seven ten-meter sections, below which, at the lowest sea level, there are 35 polyethylene pipes of different lengths, diameters and slopes embedded on the shore that are inclined to the coastline and end in the canal (service corridor). The wave-suppressed air flows from the wider into the narrow profile to get the acceleration and the sound of the whistles (LABIUMI whistles) located in the corridor below the coastal promenade, where the sound (through the mystical openings in the stone) comes into the promenade. The instrument has seven clusters of five selected tones derived from the matrix of Dalmatian klapa singing. As the energy must be unpredictable in countless changes in tide, oscillation, magnitude, strength and direction, so is the eternal concert of marine organs reminiscent of innumerable musical variations whose author and interpreter is the very nature.
Church of St. Donat
The symbol of the city of Zadar and the most famous monumental building in Croatia from the early Middle Ages (9th century). Church of St. Donata is a rounded pre-Romanesque church that by the 15th century was called the church of St. Trinity, and since then it has the name of St. Donat, by the bishop who gave her to build her. For the first time the church is mentioned in the middle of the 10th century in the documents of Byzantine emperor Konstatina Porfirogeneta. Due to its distinctive cylindrical shape and a somewhat robust monumentality, this building belongs to the most famous and most significant European pre-Romanesque churches. The type of construction follows the shape of the church chapels of the circular floor from the early to the Carolinian period. Still, with its coarse monumentality (height 27 meters), the unusual cylindrical shape and double interior space stand out with originality, without some direct patterns.
Located in the heart of the city’s core, Knez’s Palace is one of the most beautiful cultural objects in Croatia. With the reconstruction of the palace with funds from the EU funds in 2017, the city of Zadar has got a modernly equipped cultural and historical complex and a new tourist attraction. The palace stretches over 2000 square meters and in one place it combines museum space, atrium, concert hall, temporary exhibition hall, video gallery, multimedia hall, and educational and creative spaces. The architecture of the palace, the ambience of space and the scenery of the environment is an additional attraction for the lovers of culture. The recently restored Knights’ Palace was already in the first year of work as one of the places to visit in Zadar, winning the Croatian Travel Award in the category of cultural attraction in 2017.
