Look out for this column at the port end of the Placa (Main Street). Dating back to the15th century, it was common for cities in the Hanseatic League to erect similar statues symbolizing the alliance and protection, although there is a legend that Orlando rescued the city for a siege in the 9th century. The length of Orlando’s forearm was used as a standard for the measure of one cubit, which is also shown more accurately by a line in the base, thus you may see people strangely measuring their arms against the statue! Worth a photo!

If you are in the old city you will come right by this place. Great central location. Learn about the history and you will appreciate it more.

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.
