Right in front of St. Berez's Church is the Orlando Column, one of Dubrovnik's most beautiful works of art. It has been a symbol of freedom and independence for 600 years and is the heart of the city's spirit. Carved on is the most famous knight Roland of the Middle Ages, Dubrovnik has been the legend of Roland wearing armor to help the people of Dubrovnik against the enemy. The introduction of the old city is a bit of a tiger, mainly here and the city merged into one, but I have limited language and expression, and the whole city's cultural cognition limited, can not be introduced too much. Still leave some space for people to look forward to and imagine, must experience firsthand before you can experience the heavy and emotional history.
The stone pillars are always the most visible and highly visible when visiting.
The Orlando Stone Column, the oldest public sculpture preserved in the city so far, is engraved with the sword of the medieval knight Orlando.
