Column in the old town used as a meeting point and marker between the rectors palace and the church for st blaise. Easy to walk past without thinking about it however the column is celebrating st orlando who has an interesting story involving heroic deeds and boats. Worth reading up on if interested.

Unless you aren't looking around you can't miss this statue as you walk around Dubrovnik. It's down the main pedestrian street at the end. There is history to it so read up a bit but it's out in the open and pretty neat to see.

Often used a s a meeting point in the city, so always very busy ...

Neat statue dedicated to Dubrovnik's famous knight.

Depending on when you go, it can quite easily be missed (we almost did when there was a market fair going on in front of the church).
