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.

  • I was, I saw, but the big toe is not pomacałem. I'm starting to believe that my lack of lucky the last time is a related:(. Therefore, the truth does not better the big toe touch. It does not hurt.

  • A beautiful statue that has gained fame thanks to the legend that revolves around to touch your toe toe... that the poor are fully polished by the hands of the hundreds of tourists who come up there.

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.
