2. 3000 Years of History
Today Zadar is a preserved monument of various historical times and cultures that have placed their boundaries and visible outlines of their urban appearance. During its existence it was for many centuries the home of the Ilyrian Liburni and for 1000 years the capital city of Dalmatia. Rich in history, it is curently a focal point in civilisation, and most of all city with an unquestionable future: its accepted concept of development into an international, Mediterranean and Adriatic metropolis is being realised. It is a city with a rich Croatian national identity created in the present, wich successfully adheres to the newest trends in globalisation and informatisation.
Two of Zadar's most noteworthy attractions are the Sea Organs and the Greeting to the Sun. The Sea Organ sculpture is seventy meters long and has thirty-five organ pipes built under the concrete; driven by wind and waves this organ creates harmonious notes at random. The Greeting to the Sun consists of three hundred multi-layered glass plates placed on the same level with the stone-paved waterfront in the shape of a 22-meter diameter circle. After what's deemed by many as the "world's most beautiful sunset", the solar powered lighting elements produce an exceptionally impressive show of light in the rhythm of the waves and the sounds of the Sea organs.
