Zlatna Vrata (Golden Gate)
Zlatna Vrata (Golden Gate) Review
Formerly the main entrance into the palace, Zlatna Vrata, on the north side of the palace, is the most monumental of the four gates - two guards in Roman costume stand here through summer. Just outside the Zlatna Vrata stands Meštrović's gigantic bronze statue of Grgur Ninski (Bishop Gregory of Nin). During the 9th century, the bishop campaigned for the use of the Slav language in the Croatian Church, as opposed to Latin, thus infuriating Rome. This statue was created in 1929 and placed on Peristil to mark the 1,000th anniversary of the Split Synod, then moved here in 1957. Note the big toe on the left foot, which is considered by locals to be a good luck charm and has been worn gold through constant touching.
