Grgur Ninski Statue Tips (17)

The Gregorious of Nin Statue

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
