Grgur Ninski Statue, Split

(550+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
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. Put Grgur Ninski Statue on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Split itinerary planner.

  • North of the Palace area is a huge statue is standing on the edge. Of the mind become a Japanese name because I went to see. Wishes come true and you touching the toe of the statue and is said, and tourists come to see was. Thumbs I peeled paint and shining in Tinseltown. So-called "touch jizo" in, and funny, and unclassified. Forget to take pictures dressed as the same (lol
