The Sculpture of Gregory of Nin

In Split, there is a statue of the Bishop Gregory of Nin that is over six feet tall, created by the famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović. Gregory lived in Nin from about 900 to 929. He was one of the first supporters of the Croatian language and the national letter glagoljica. The large monument was built in 1929. The popular belief that wishes are fulfilled and happiness is brought to those who touch Gregory’s big toe is linked to this statue. For this reason, the toe of the statue is slightly brighter than the rest of it.
