Liberating Dubrovnik

Orlando's Column in Dubrovnik, Croatia stands as an honor to the legendary hero Orlando who, according to legend, helped to liberate Dubrovnik from the dangerous sieges of Arab pirates in the 8th century.

The column stands between Sponza Palaca and the Church of St. Blaise. It is a stone column with the figure of a medieval warrior carved into it. It stands as a symbol of freedom of Dubrovnik, and every year, a ceremony before Orlando and the raising of the "Libertas" flag on the column marks the opening of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
