Grgur Ninski or Gregory of Nin

Grgur Ninski was a Croatian bishop of Nin who strongly opposed the Pope and according to history introduced the national language.

The statue is located to the north of the Palace and Old Town of Split, just outside the Golden Gate. It’s said to bring good luck if you rub the toe of the statue (just not to him since his toe has become very smooth).  But the statue is a very popular tourist site, so you might have to line up to get in and get your share of luck.
