This is the original statue of a Croatian bishop of Nin . He is an important man introducing the national language in Croatia

There is a bigger statue in Split but this one is the main one.

According to the tradition rubbing his toe brings good luck.

Gregory of Nin was a bisschop who strongly opposed the pope and introduced the national language in the religious services (instead of Latin). The statue (unvealed in 1932) is the work of the famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović. Initially made for Spilt but considered too small! Rubbing the statue's toe is said to bring good luck.

Gregory of Nin (Croatian: Grgur Ninski ) 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 to the majority of the population. Not only was this important for Croatian language and culture but it also made the religion stronger within the Croatian kingdom.

The statue of Gregory of Nin by Ivan Meštrović in Varazdin like the one in Split and in Nin is a heavily trafficked tourist site in the town, which the toe of the statue shows. Rubbing the statue's toe is said to bring good luck. The toe has been worn smooth and shiny as a result.

This is a statue of a very important man in Croatian history. It is in the heart of the small town with churches and the cathedral close by.

This bishop made major reforms to religion in Croatia by using their national language during church services. There are three of these statues in Croatia.

If you rub his thumb it will bring you good luck. It is close to main square. Must see. Kids had a blast rubbing his thumb.

This statue is a much smaller version of Grgur than the gigantic version in Split. Easy to find while wandering the streets of Old Town. A lot of wishes were made here as is evidenced by his large gold toe.

If you grab his toe and make a wish it might come true but over all nothing special for a person that doesn't care much about this kind of stuff. Just a statue of a guy.

The statue of Grgur Ninski in Varazdin is one of three sculptures of this Croatian bishop; one is in Split and one in Nin. Ivan Mestrovic, a famous Croatian artist, made the sculpture and gave it to the city of Varazdin in 1931.
