Have you ever listened to the crashing of waves on the shore and felt it lull you to sleep? You’re not alone.

Now, imagine that relaxing melody being coupled with organ music, and what do you get? No, it’s not something you can only enjoy in your dreams – there is actually an organ that turns the rhythm of waves into music.

Located in Croatia, the Sea Organ, or Morske Orgujle, was constructed by renowned architect Nikola Basic in 2005. Stretching over 230 feet long, narrow crevices are carved in the stone steps on the coast, leading to organ pipes. When the waves gently lap onto the steps, it pushes the air through the pipes, producing clear, albeit a tad bit haunting, music.

Of course, it doesn’t always sound the same. What you hear when you visit may not sound like what was on the video. One thing is guaranteed, though, this architectural marvel will leave you feeling relaxed and at peace.
