GRGUR NINSKI (2-minute walk from hotel)

The statue of Grgur Ninski is situated north of the Palace, just as you exit the Golden Gate. One of his big toes is golden and shiny – the locals believe that rubbing it makes wishes come true. A lot of our guests visit him and make a wish to come back to Split one day. Grgur Ninski was a Croatian bishop who was of great importance for Croatian language, culture and Christianity. To learn more about the work and life of Ivan Meštović, we highly recommend visiting the Gallery of Ivan Meštrović in Split.
