Lol, half of all the comments are about Croatia and the Dinaric Alps/Netherlands, and not about Goran's height.

@Koreanorigin188cm yeah people from Balkan are tall. Im 186cm and i feel like im the shortest every time im out
HonestSlovene said on 12/Jan/18
@Slim 6' Yes around those numbers, I'd say 186-187 cm is low tall/tall range, 182-183 cm high medium, 179-180 cm medium range and 176-177 cm low average range and 172-173 cm high short range. 190 cm + is very tall and 168 cm or less very short.

@Roger: It's amazing how tall the males from the Dinaric Alps are. 185 cm for males is just crazy. I think the dutch average is actually 182 cm not 184 cm though. There were other cdc studies showing that number but if you have any more info, I'd appreciate it.
Slim 6' said on 18/Oct/17
Lmao, I thought being of English/German descent would make me super tall. I can't believe 6' is average in former Yugoslavia.

@HonestSlovene, how tall do you have to be to be considered "tall" in Slovenia?
My guess would be 186-187. In USA its 181 and from where I'm from 184-185 is the start of solid tall as in you'll be tall even into old age.
HonestSlovene said on 15/Oct/17
@Rade Thanks for that, I'm getting sick of those exagerations, 182-183 cm is probably in the dinaric region and about 179-181 cm in the rest of former yugoslavia.
Rade said on 16/Aug/17
Mirko Don't exagerate. I am from Serbia, both Serbs and Croats are 182-183 average male height, women are under 170
Mirko said on 10/Jul/17

Same height as conan o'brien 6'3.25 and 6'4.25-.6'4.5 with dress shoe
Sam said on 15/Oct/15
Thought he came off a tad shorter as well in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. However, by Tilda Swinton and Raymond J. Barry in The Deep End, I think looks pretty close to the 6'4" as he did in what little I saw of ER.
pataan19 said on 4/Nov/13
Yeah, same! I mean, I used to think he was a strong 6'4 until I saw the photos of him with Luke Goss who's listed here at 6 feet and genuinely looks it. He seems no more than 3 inches taller than Goss. I would say he's a solid 6,3 and with his large frame can appear close to 6'4 at times!
Lo sgozzatore said on 19/Aug/13
I saw him in Red Widow and he did look a bit taller than Edi Gathegi. Then i saw Gathegi's listing and there's noway this guy is a big 6'4! It seems crazy! Maybe he could be between 6'2 and 6'3, even if that still seems generous...

Looked 192cm with Daniel Craig

I do hope you're a girl Jons LOL. Yes he's an obviously stereotypical tall dark and handsome but "breathtaking" is a little extreme hehe.

Goran stepped up beside me at a magazine rack at LAX, I looked over, and then up, right under his sunglasses. I would say 6'4 is accurate. He is extremely handsome, breathtaking. He looked down at me and I felt like I should say something. I introduced myself and offered my hand to shake his. He said "Goran". I said I enjoyed his work, he said thank you. I didn't want to call attention to a celebrity, and he seemed cold, so I left it at that. Of course I am used to Scott Bakula, who after meeting him twice, remembers me by name and gives me a hug at each successive meeting.
Sam said on 4/Jan/12
He looks at least 3 inches shorter than big Bill Fagerbaake in a photo in EW magazine this week. Fagerbaake is usually listed as 6'6"

Having watched, 'Elektra', which stars 5'8", 'Jennifer Garner', I noticed that there are remarkable similarities present between, "Goran ViÅ¡njić" and myself which include our height, which is 6'4", 1.93 m, 193 cm, our long faces, our straight black hair and our oval shaped Green eyes. 

As well as our genetic similarities, there are Geographical and Cultural features we share; we are both of Croatian descent, specifically from the Dalmatian coastal city of Å ibenik, SR Croatia, SFR Yugoslavia and we have both expressed fondness of the Croatian and English female name, 'Lana'

I should just like to mention that in the Summer of 2011, I was in Croatia and an attractive young woman approached me and said to me in Croatian, "Excuse me for saying this, but you look very like, 'Goran ViÅ¡njić' ". I was quite chuffed and I responded with the humble answer, "Hvala" which literally means, "Thanks".

'Goran ViÅ¡njić' is a super actor and a handsome chap.

Brosnan is 6'1.25" as measured by the Bond tailor's. Goran defnitely looks a strong 6'4"
Amadeus said on 1/Jan/11
Why did I find 6'9.He looks so tall
Bon said on 28/Dec/10
yeah, and Brosnan is probably a weak 6' in reality.
Shaun said on 20/Dec/10
Most photographs of him though he looks 6'2"-6'3" range. He doesn't really look 6'42 until you see him next to somebody like Brosnan and you see that he is very much a legit 6'4".
Shaun said on 20/Dec/10
Looks 6'4.5" next to Brosnan. A perfect example of a legitimate easy 6 ft 4.
Bon said on 5/Nov/10
6'4 at lowest, in the morning probably 6'5 flat

Big King said on 19/Apr/09
Well I estimated he looked 6'7" in ER because he appeared taller than Kevin Durand who is at 6'6" on CelebHeights lol! Click Here
Doug said on 8/Apr/09
Croatia by far seems to have the highest proportion of 6'4" or 6'5" guys I've ever seen. In Dalmatia they are even taller than the Dutch, average is 6'1" in southern coastal Croatia. A great number of Croatian sports stars are in this range. However on average in Croatia average height is actually only around 5'10" and the men are much shorter on average in Zagreb etc. But southern coastal Croatia is very tall but even 6'4" is noticeably tall.
Denis said on 26/Mar/09
Well,that's maybe for the older generations.
But population of age 17-35 today in Croatia are 6'1 tall in average,something like that.maybe even taller...
Visnjic extraordinary tall for Croatian standards?i wouldn't agree at all...
Neon Genesis said on 10/Dec/08
Most men here Croatia are between 5' 9" (175 cm) and 6'1'' (185 cm), altough there are plenty that go beyond that (the average height in this country is pretty high). Visnjic with his 6'4'' (193 cm) is extraordinary tall even by Croatian standards :)
Anonymous said on 1/Dec/08
Im 6'1 is that above average for you croatian people?
Bowser said on 22/Oct/08
It's been said already, but we Croatians are quite tall. I'm 185cm and I'm one of the "shorter" guys...I'm cool with it too like Jos ;)
Jos said on 23/Aug/08

Yaspaa said on 7/Jul/08
3" taller than average. How is life Vulcan?
kat,yuk,I'm 6'4 I can spot duds like you from a mile away. Blame men for your height,oh sorry are you 13 or something? if so ,sorry,if not suck it up and be humble.
Markus said on 24/Jun/08
Davey, American men are shorter than tan average north european man.
In the 1900's this was the other way round, so yeah, you could say american men have become shorter. Possibly due to food / lifestyle.

5'10 for a woman is like 3 inches taller than average? I don't consider that to be big.
Davey said on 3/Jun/08
Kat,American men arnt short,You are just big.Get it right.
kat said on 25/May/08
o.k. that's it i now want to move to Croatia. the men in the U.S. are SO short I am 5'10 and have a hard time finding a man to look up to but according to everyone all the men are tall there that's it i'm going

Yes it's true that he rarely stands up fully tall.it's for the series of ER-not to be misjudged as 'the giant doctor'.
he's 6-5 definitively

I agree with the guy from Croatia. I'm from Serbia(a neighbour country) and I also saw Goran once. He is 6'2 max. More like 6'1.75
Anonymous said on 22/May/05
I think that Goran Visnjic is more like 6'1" = 184cm because
i am from croatia and i saw him at one film festival...
Smoke said on 28/Mar/05
In comparing his height to Wyle's, he only looks 3-4 inches taller, that being said, if we know so many heights are false on E.R...let's get into the women's heights! Goran doesn't even stand tall on the show, and still looks more than a foot taller than most of the women on the show. Even while he slouches, virtually none of the women even reach his shoulders. I definately have a hunch (pardon the pun) that Linda Cardellini, Maura Tierney, and Parminder Nagra are closer to 5 feet than 5'3" that all of them get generously listed as. While Wyle might be wearing lifts, or standing on a crate, he certainly doesn't appear to be dwarfed by Goran though, who I do see being a solid 193-194 cm standing tall. I wonder what the secret of Croatians is when it comes to height!
