Grgur Ninski Statue, Split
(3.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Exit through the door of gold of the Diocletian's Palace, a huge bronze sculpture of about 8 m of height, is where everybody touches your thumb toe, they say brings good luck. It is Grgur Ninski or Gregorio de Nin, a Bishop from the 10th century which objected strongly to the Pope and the official media of the Church to defend the realization of masses in Croatian slavon against latin. It was previously changed site several times. We played him all the fingers just in case.
