Monument to the Sun or The Greeting to the Sun (Croatian: Pozdrav suncu) is a monument in Zadar, Croatia dedicated to the Sun. It consists of three hundred, multi-layered glass plates placed on the same level as the stone-paved waterfront. It consists of a 22-meter diameter circle, with photovoltaic solar modules underneath. Lighting elements installed in a circle turn on at night, and produce a light show. The monument, designed by Croatian architect Nikola Bašić, symbolizes communication with nature, communicates with light, while the nearby Sea organ communicates with sound.

Lots of people to socialise with, can get crowded. Amazing sunsets with the solar lights going when the sun goes down. There are also sea organs in the ground that makes cool sounds when the wind hits them.
Amazing. Must visit at night if you are here. Dont miss this.
Beautiful sunset and lights show after. Nice, warm and you can feel connection with all that people amazed by the same as you :)
Very nice atmosphere - the sunset there makes everyone relaxed, happy, playful, open. It is a place where many cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs are at peace together.
A lot of tourists, but great view on sunset. Size comparisons of the solar system. The picture shows the sparkling sun at night.
A beautiful representation of the Solar System using solar panels, made even more special by the music from the Sea Organ and the view of the sea around it.
This is a beautiful point in the old town where we can reconnect with nature.
Love this place.. su much fun with friends visit Zadar and famous places The Greeting to the Sun.. Love it..
Lovely spot , where the sun hitting all the area.
Amazing spot to look at the sunset. Lot of people come here to relax at the end of the afternoon and to listen to musician and water organs. It's a magical place to set down after a day visiting the town. Come here with your family, friends or even better, with your lover. In the center, you can see the solar panels and your reflection in it. In short, a stunning place worth coming at sunset.
Really unique and worth seeing at sunset, but there are so many tourists, families and kids that it ruined the vibe. It's not romantic or peaceful, it's busy and family-oriented. There were people selling light-up toys and it was very loud. Not a bad thing, but still good to know for solo travelers and couples. I recommend experiencing it on a weekday and possibly with your own music 😊
THE NATURES MUSIC The Sea organ is an architectural sound art object located in Zadar, Croatia and an experimental musical instrument, which plays music by way of sea waves and tubes located underneath a set of large marble steps.
Zadar is a small but beautiful and relaxing city. This spot is very cool, a good place to enjoy sunset and night view.
A romantic place for couples, and also a nice place for friends and fam to come with. Great location to see the sunset!
