Day trip to Zadar from Makarska, Omis and Split

Come with us to the heart of the Adriatic, a beautiful town of Zadar. Well known for its exceptional history and rich cultural heritage, Zadar combines it in style with new and modern installations, like already worldwide famous Sea organs and Sun salutation, located on a waterfront where, as Alfred Hitchcock once said: "Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world, more beautiful than the one in Key West, Florida, applauded at every evening."

How whole trip looks like:

After pick up and drive on a new built, modern highway of approximately 2 hours from Split (2.5 hours from Omis, or 3 hours from Makarska), we will reach this jewell of Northern Dalmatia. Located on a small peninsula, The Old Town is easy enough to get around on foot. We will start through Land Gate of Zadar, through the Square of Five Wells and park of Queen Jelena. Then, through the main street called Kalelarga to the very heart of the city. There are 34 old churches situated on the peninsula, and all of them with a very rich history. The oldest is St. Simeon (Sv. Šime), which houses the silver reliquary of the saint, one of Zadar's main sights. Another site not to be missed is St. Donat's church - one of the best preserved pre-Romanesque buildings in the world. It is pretty difficult to miss, as it has become the most recognizable symbol of Zadar. The church is no longer in use for religious ceremonies, and today is a museum. Just next to it, there is well preserved remains of a Roman Forum. This is a common place for locals to stroll, sit down amongst the ruins and enjoy a nice summer day.

A short stroll away and thousands of years ahead its historical sites, Zadar’s incredible Sea Organ awaits, designed by local architect Nikola Bašić, and it 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.

100 meters further, The Sun Salutation is a 22 metre diameter solar panel formed from 300 multi-layered glass panels. Underneath these glass conduction plates, there are a series of solar cells. The solar cells absorb the Sun’s energy from sunrise to sunset, and convert this energy into electricity. The electricity produced is then used to light the entire waterfront at night – a unique example of an efficient and renewable energy source. At sunset, the installation switches on and displays a series of bright colourful lights. The motion of the lights is dependent on the solar energy collected throughout the day as well as the power of the waves, and is supposed to also represent the motion of the solar system. All eight planets are represented by proportionally sized solar lights placed at their proportional distances from the sun.
