Visiting the Gregory of Nin statue had always been the symbol of hope and prosperity. According to legend, if you make a wish and touch his golden finger, your dream will come true.
We also recommend going on some of the beautiful, natural beaches. You can choose between secluded ones and those where you can have fun and play “Picigin” with your friends, for example, Bacvice beach. If you haven’t heard for Picigin, it’s the most popular and traditional water-ball game from Split. Furthermore, Bacvice is one of the most popular beaches in Croatia.
