Wacky Wednesday ~ Grgur Ninski attracts superstitious tourists

When looking at the sights of Nin, I also noticed a very tall statue. The statue of Grgur of Nin is about six meters high and a great reach of the citizens of Nin. The Bishop of Nin is important to the Croats because he was a great supporter of the Old Slavic language and folk script of the Glagolitic language, as well as to all others who believed in the legend that it would bring them happiness or fulfill their wish. Over time, the monument became a matter of tradition and superstition – if you grab Grgur by the thumb and wish something, your wish will be fulfilled. Thousands of people do this regularly, and the thumb was given a different color, which at least makes it easy to find where you need to touch to try their luck. Of course I tried.

      • Ok, regarding the coffee issue, the study says: “Coffee is rich in antioxidants, polyphenols and phenylindane, a recently identified compound that researchers think may help fend off Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Drinking coffee has also been linked to reduced risks for several cancers, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Drink your coffee without sugar or processed syrups, and don’t make it too milky: the antioxidant value appears to drop when milk is added.”
