Sightseeing Tour Introduction
A unique experience of walking through the most exciting old town that will leave everyone breathless. It was nominated by a prestigious Belgian blockbuster "Best European Destinations" as a best tourist destination in Europe 2016.
Zadar's incredible Sea Organ , designed by local architect Nikola Bašić, is unique. Set within the perforated stone stairs that descend into the sea is a system of pipes and whistles that exudes wistful sighs when the movement of the sea pushes air through it. The effect is hypnotic, the mellifluous tones increasing in volume when a boat or ferry passes by. You can swim from the steps off the promenade while listening to the sounds.
To begin with I'll take you trough the old town which is padded on the peninsula, surrounded by beautiful parks and city walls. At the heart of the peninsula there are numerous monuments, restaurants and cafes and also numerous facilities for visitors such as museums, various shops. . .
