    A day trip to Zadar

    November 3, 2016 in Croatia ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Zadar is one of the larger towns along Croatia's coastline. There was no problem parking here like there had been in Pula, despite a no stopping sign with a picture of a camper van outside the main car park. It was a wet weekday outside of the tourist season so the parking attendant saw no problem with the van taking up two spaces.

    Heading first to the morning market, we walked alongside the lengthy marina. There was a film of oil on the surface but we could still see down into the water and watch shoals of fish milling around the moored boats.

    Climbing to the top of the town walls, we spotted the market just inside them. It was quite different to Pula's market, less about businesses selling to tourists and more more about individuals' cottage industries selling to locals. The small, dark wood tables had metal weighing scales and weights to measure the produce and stall holders called out to us in a friendly manner. We bought some home dried figs and olive oil, the latter in a reused plastic water bottle. Will's eyes were drawn to a cheese counter laden with rounds of hard cheese. Germany had a dearth of strong hard cheese and Will has been determined to make up for it! The stallholder, knowing the quality of the product would do the selling, encouraged us to try a sliver. We came away with quarter of a truckle and smiles on our faces. Picking up potatoes, clementines and a pomegranate, we managed to resist the tempting looking squid and cured meats and started our exploration of the town.

    Many of Zadar's streets were narrow, with smooth light coloured stone lining the walkways. There was the remains of a Roman marketplace around a church and people could just wander in and out of the large, ornately carved ancient stone fragments laying on the ground. We passed through these on our way to the seafront where two interesting sound and light art installations had been built into the promenade. The Sea Organ produces music when waves push air through holes and Greeting to the Sun, a huge horizontal disc of solar panels emits random bursts of coloured light. It was too light to see the later to full effect but we enjoyed both.

    Darkness closed in as we returned to Camp Jaz but we got to see a beautiful sunset glow over the water from the head of the bay.

    Sundowner in Zadar

    May 1 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Nach einem tollen ersten Tag in der Altstadt in Zadar, schauen wir uns den Sonnenuntergang an und hören im Hintergrund die Meeresorgel und sehen dem "Gruß an die Sonne" mit seinen bunten Solar- Lichtspielen zu.
    Ein berühmter Mann hat 1964 über den Sonnenuntergang in Zadar gesagt: " Zadar hat den schönsten Sonnenuntergang der Welt, noch schöner als in Key West, Florida, wo man ihm jeden Abend applaudiert." Dieses Zitat von Meister Alfred Hitchock, der vor 54 Jahren im ehemaligen Hotel Zagreb an der Riva von Zadar logierte, hat bis heute seine volle Berechtigung.Read more

    L’organo marino è stato aperto al pubblico il 15 aprile 2005 , si trova a Zara in Croazia ed è un’opera d’arte architettonica e musicale progettata dall’architetto Nikola Bašić.
    Si trova sull’angolo nord-occidentale della banchina che circonda il centro storico. Si tratta di un organo, strutturalmente simile ad una scala digradante verso il mare.
    Se si passa di lì, è quasi impossibile non essere attratti dal contrasto del bianco dei gradoni  con l’intenso blu del mare.
    Sedervisi è inevitabile cullati dal perfetto connubio dell’infrangersi delle onde e dal suono di esse elaborato e riproposto dall’organo in melodia.

    Zadar

    June 7 in Croatia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Unsere Unterkunft in Zadar ist ein Glückstreffer. Nicht nur, dass sie sauber und gepflegt ist, sie ist auch mitten in der Stadt - wir gehen aus der Tür und sind mitten drin! Heute war ein Bummel-Tag an dem wir die Stadt gemütlich erkundet haben, Sehenswürdigkeiten angeschaut und einen Markt besucht haben. Da haben wir uns mit frischen Fisch für das Abendessen eingedeckt. Abends sind wir, nachdem Max eh nicht schlafen wollte, um die Häuser gezogen und haben das Nachtleben kennen gelernt! Okay, es war auch etwas der Plan, denn "Der Gruß an die Sonne" leuchtet erst abends, was auch mehr Sinn macht ;)Read more
