Do not miss to visit the monument to Gregory of Nin (Grgur Ninski in Croatian), created by the most famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. The statue is an imposing 6 feet tall. It is believed that touching his thumb brings happiness and the realization of desires.
So whether you’re superstitious or not, don’t miss to touch it and make a wish!
In June 2014 this Mestrovic statue was closed due to renovations. Finally, as it was promised, on March 17th 2015, Split’s much-loved statue, a new restored Bishop Gregory of Nin, is back in its full splendor.
It’s a good news for all tourists ready to rub the bishop’s luck toe. So anyone who is in search for some good luck, Grgur is back again. Happy rubbing!
