Artist's Description

Erected in 1929, one of the most visited sights in Split is this remarkable statue of Gregory of Nin (Grgur Ninski in Croatian) by Ivan Mestrovic.

Grgur Ninski was a Croatian religious leader from the 10th century. The big toe on the statue’s left foot is shiny gold, having been rubbed by many people over the years – rubbing it is said to bring good luck.

The statue sits outside the north wall of the Diocletian’s Palace in the Old Town of Split, Croatia, just outside the Golden Gate.

The Historical Complex of Split with the Palace of Diocletian is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
