The statue of Roland emphasizes the great age of the city of Dubrovnik. It has been here for almost six hundred years, standing guard over the square in front of the St. Blaise church. With his shield and long, pointy sword, Roland takes you back to the era of knights and castles when pirates roamed the Adriatic Sea and Venetian sailing ships headed East for precious cargoes. The statue is extremely well preserved, though with all the grabbing and rubbing it receives these days, it has to get eroded eventually. A nice quirky little thing to check out.
