The Sun Salutation in Zadar, was one of our favorite places in Croatia. This light display is completely powered by the sun and it also powers half of all the lights in Zadar’s waterfront. On many nights we would just relax and watch the color patterns change on the sun and the planets. It consists of three hundred multi-layered glass plates covering a 22-meter diameter circle with solar modules underneath. How cool is that?
In Zadar, the Sea Organ rests upon the banks of the Adriatic Sea. It is a place I was looking forward to visiting that Brianna did not know about. She loves music, and this was the most interesting way music could be composed. Once she found out what was happening, she was ecstatic. The organ looks like a set of steps leading down to the water, but it is so much more than that.
Zadar has a collection of ancient glass from the time of the Roman Empire in the Museum of Ancient Glass. The glass collection was excavated at archaeological sites all over Croatia. The museum transported us back in time as we walked through this museum. It is amazing how some of these pieces stood the test of time and are mostly intact.
