Happy finger
In Split, we believe, that big finger in the left foot of bishop Grgur is happy. Whatever we plans to do (pass exam, get married, divorced, ect) we go first to touch his finger :-)

Bishop Grgur, before church reform, fought for holy mass to be conducted in an old Slovenian language.
The sculpture of Grgur was made by Ivan Mestrovic – the most famous Croatian sculptor and a very good friend of Rodin.
When you are in Split – you can visit his house, it is only a 15 minute walk from Diocletian’s Palace. You can also visit his studio in Zagreb.

So Split has one of the happy places in the world!

The author of the statue was Ivan Mestrovic. His home today is the gallery of his sculptures. I recommend you to see this incredible place.
