You can find this statue just outside the Golden Gate. If you are inside the palace, exit the golden gate and it will lead to an open area where the statue of Grgur Ninski (Gregory of Nin) is rising on an elevation, erected in 1957 (Ivan Mestrovic, 1929). The little park northwest of the gate is very relaxing and I read that it acommodated the remains of the church of St. Euphemia
This statue was built by Ivan Meštrović, a Croatian Sculptor, in 1929. It is claimed by legend that tickling the statue's big toe will bring good luck and fortune to those who do.
This is a monument of the bishop of Nin, work of the Croatian sculptor I. Mestrovic. The story says that if you touch the toe of the statue and make a wish your wish will come true.
Giant statue of Gregorius of Nin who fought to have the Catholic Mass said in Croatian. Statue has very odd gigantic hands and a shiny toe which people touch for good luck.
