Visit Grgur Ninski Statue, dedicated to a medieval Croatian bishop who introduced the Croatian language into church services and reinforced Christianity within the kingdom. The statue represents the bishop with book in hand and a look of poised determination. Carved by Ivan Meštrović, a great Croatian sculptor of the 20th century, the statue is said to bring good luck to those who rub its toe. Snap a photo of this 1929 Art Nouveau creation, noting that its toe is worn to a shine.

  • Because this statue is in place in the ancient city palace, so if you go to the ancient city area will wander to this side, said that touch the statue of the thumb will have good luck, so we also join the touch toe of the ranks, basically to Europe to see some of the statue in the blink of a flash, on behalf of the touch will have good things happen, touch the right.
