“Point of reference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

It's like a point of reference in the end of the Stradun, nevertheless a very nice piece that goes along with the style of the old town

“Center of old city activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

This statue and column is found at one end of the Stradun opposite the Church of St. Blaise in the old city.

Built in the 1400’s, it is an interesting landmark. It represents the Knight Roland (Orlando is an Italian form of the name) and was a symbol of freedom and liberty to the locals.

It was at this spot that public announcements and notices were made

“Great photos with a statue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

It is a very detailed statue of a guy named Orlando. Lots of people were taking photos. One of the few statues of people in the city.
