That amazing view – Split. Croatia

When you get out in the back of Diocletian palace your eyes will lay on this view. Love love love it!

Statue of Grgur Ninski, made my Ivan Meštrović. Don’t forget to rub his toe and make a wish! 🙂 

Grgur Ninski, who strongly opposed the Pope and official circles of the Church and introduced the national language in the religious services after the Great Assembly in 926.  Until that time, services were held only in Latin, not being understandable to the majority of the population. Not only was this important for Croatian language and culture but it also made Christianity stronger within the Croatian kingdom.
