  • Renaissance Loggia,
  • City Guard Building from 1562 expanded with a Clock Tower in the 19th century,
  • Landward Gate,
  • Five Wells Square,
  • Cathedral of St. Anastasia from the turn of the 12th and 13th century,

Two architectural updates in Zadar are the magnificent Sea Organ and Sun Salutation  at the city’s waterfront.
- The Sea Organ is incorporated in the waterfront and its repertoire depends on waves and  The melody is produced by the sea pushing  the air through  35 vertically installed tubes and slants.
- Sun Salutation has solar modules in the panels  that absorb the sunlight programmed to display light effects at night.
