Ruin Historic Site
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.

Where to stay in Split

Split and its surrounding area boast an extensive system of private accommodations for rent, which range from simply furnished rooms to elegantly outfitted multi-room apartments. Many locals approach travelers at the main bus station with offers of available lodgings, but before you agree to anything, make sure you know the room's exact location in reference to the town center. For something more luxurious, check out the city's four- and five-star hotels, or consider an elegant villa a walk away from the major sights.

  • It is indeed a special statue. There were a lot of people there, but it did not bother us. If you are in Split this is a "must-see".  more »

  • Amazing place, excellent location. We stayed in a beautiful, comfortable, and very clean room. Mladen, the owner, went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The hotel is a beautifully renovated building in the Old Town, so you can't get there by car, but the hotel offers parking outside the area (they take care of that, and bring your car close by when you need it). We got confused about the date of our stay at MK Studios (same owners), Milka was very helpful, and got us the room at Grgur Ninski so we could stay on the day we actually got to Split. On top of that, they kept the price of our original reservation.
  • Super nice room inside the palace boundaries, run by a super nice guy. The room is quite spacious at 22 sqm, has a large comfortable bed and pilllows. The bathroom is small but modern and features a great shower with plenty of room to move. The location is the best you can get in Split and parking nearby can be arranged nearby for 10 euro per day. This is a very modern room costing a little more but in my view good value. We had a great stay at Grgur Ninski Rooms.
  • The room was really nice and the service was very good. Would come back!
