rather Gregory of Nin (Croatian: Grgur Ninski, pronounced [ɡr̩̂ɡuːr nîːnskiː]) was a medieval Croatian bishop of Nin who strongly opposed the Pope and official circles of the Church and introduced the national language in the religious services after the Great Assembly in 926, according to traditional Croatian historiography. Until that time, services were held only in Latin, not being understandable... More

Huge statue, very impressive and very popular to rub his big toe for luck. It is situated in a really pleasant part of the old city!

I have been there by night and took amazing photos of the statue and the old city wall. Every attraction is so close to each other that you end up coming back for more.

A good little spot to relax after walking around old town. We grabbed an ice cream and drink and rested before going back in.

I don't know why but I found this statue a bit unique in its appearance. We didn't set out to find it but came upon it while exploring around the old town / palace. The parks and surrounding area are a nice break from some of the crowds.

Even if you don't go to the Marjan peninsula to visit the full Ivan Meštrović's gallery, here is one of his works, just outside of the Golden Gate or north gate of the palace. It looks fierce, kind of HarryPotteresque!

A very impressive monument. It is located just outside the main entrance to Diocletian's Palace and has been renovated recently and looks amazing. Great for young and old, regardless of the history. The fact that you can rub his foot and miracles happen was enough to get the kids involved and interested in the history. A must see if you... More

I rubbed the foot of this statue. Your wish is supposed to come true. But I never got any female action while in Split. Oh well. It was still interesting anyway.

Gregory of Nin introduced the national language in 926. changing the church language from Latin, which wasn't really understood by the congregation. The statue of Gregory of Nin by Ivan Meštrović is a tourist site as rubbing the statue's toe is said to bring good luck. The toe has been worn smooth and shiny as a result.
