Standing pretty amidst other important attractions of Dubrovnik like Stradun street, Sponza palace and the City Bell Tower, the Orlando Column is important owing to the history behind it. The column is a beautiful sight of a carved knight, Orlando. As per folktales was this knight Orlando and his fleet that saved the city from a 15th century, 15 month long Saracen siege. The forearm of the Orlando was used as a standard measure for Ragusan cubit or the lakat, making this statue all the more important.
