Zadar is a fantastic place to explore, with lots of wonderful places to see. From the Roman Forum to the stunning architecture of St Anastasia’s Cathedral, there are so many things to see in and around Zadar.

A trip to Zadar wouldn’t be complete without a stroll along the waterfront and seeing some of the spectacular sunsets! The southwestern quay is also home to a fascinating urban installation.

The Roman Forum

The Roman Forum is a 90x45 m square in the centre of the old town that is still surrounded by the ruins of ancient temples and basilicas. The site was commissioned by the first Roman emperor Augustus (two inscriptions in stone indicate this) and is one of the most faithful representations of ancient Zadar.

The Forum is a car-free zone and can be accessed by bus, taxi or by bicycle. A pleasant walk through the ruins is rewarded with views of St. Donatus’ church and the sea.

The Forum was also the center of public life, and one of its columns served as a pillory where people were chained for crimes, such as theft or fraud. Visitors can explore its surviving features including stairs and monumental columns, while the foundations of the church provide a bird’s eye view.


St Anastasia’s Cathedral

As the seat of the Archdiocese and largest church in Dalmatia, Zadar’s three-nave Romanesque cathedral is a must-see. It was originally built during the 4th and 5th centuries, and much of it was remade in the 12th and 13th century.

It’s also worth a visit for its impressive bell tower, which offers panoramic views of the city and beyond. You’ll need to climb some 180 steps to reach the top, but it’s well worth it for the spectacular views!

The cathedral was originally founded when the first bishop Felix attended church councils in Aquileia in 381 and Milan in 381. Later, it received the ashes of Saint Anastasia from Byzantine Emperor Nikephoros I.


The Sea Organ

If the sea is your thing, then you’ll love a trip to Zadar. Not only is it home to a stunning sunset, but it also has some truly interesting architecture.

In 2005, architect Nikola Basic developed an ingenious installation along the waterfront that harnesses the power of the ocean. Known as the Sea Organ, it’s located at the end of the promenade on the outskirts of Old Town and attracts both tourists and locals alike.

The structure consists of a series of steps that descend into the water, with each step having its own opening into the sea. As the waves roll in, they fill these gaps and create music for passersby to listen to.

It’s a one-of-a-kind installation that’s sure to leave you in awe. The sounds of the organ are created by air pushed through pipes by the movement of the sea, and as the waves change in size, you’ll hear various chords being played.


The Greeting to the Sun

During the summer, Zadar’s Greeting to the Sun (Croatian: Pozdrav suncu) is a popular destination for tourists. It is located near the Sea Organ and provides a spectacular view of the city’s islands and a beautiful sunset.

The Greeting to the Sun is a permanent art installation on Zadar’s waterfront and was designed by noted Croatian architect Nikola Basic. It is made up of hundreds of multi-layered glass plates encasing photovoltaic solar cells that absorb the sun’s energy during the day, then produce a brilliant light show after the sun goes down.

As the light fades, the solar panels begin to shine and colors and shapes change randomly. It is an amazing display of colorful lights that represents the movements of our Solar System from sunset to sunrise.
