Big lucky toe

The statue is really big. People are rubbing Grgur's toe to catch some luck. There is a park behind where you can rest and buy some old heritage items on the market near by.

When in Split you must rub the big toe of this statue, it is suppose to bring you good luck. Also, there is an antique market located here as well.

My son was amused to see the size of its toe and how shiny it was. It was right outside the temple and not crowded at the time.

A nice place to stop in the city tour. The park behind has some benches to sit and relax. There are some art stands near by that are worth a look.

You'll definitely see this because you'll want to see the entrance where he hangs out. Rub his toe on your way down for some good luck!

You just touch the toe of Gregory of Nin, and the story tells you that it will bring you good Luck, and that you someday will Return. And we have returned. Three times!

Historically this statue was moving around Split. Now it is under repair, but the famous toe (one touches it for good luck) was reachable. Virtually all tourists make photos there, but I wonder if they know or care who Grgur was.

This monument/statue is truly fabulous. It inspires the artist within you and it is interactive as the domestic people think that by touching its toes you will add some happiness to yourself

We wanted to see it, since we found the pictures and comments on TA, but it was covered in peak of the season. Well too bad, we wanted to rub his toe for luck :(

After looking over my reviews I noticed that I did not review the famous statue of Grgur Niski, after all it is also what the tourists came to see. Have a photo taken with the statue and of course the rubbing of the toe for good luck, with all the thousands of tourists rubbing it is it very shine now
