Orlando’s Column in desperate need of repair

By  Jan 24, 2018

One of the most iconic statutes in Dubrovnik is in desperate need of repair. Orlando’s Column, in the very heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik in front of St. Blaise Church, has visible cracks all over it.

The statue was last repaired only ten years ago, but due to unprofessional works that were carried out without the licence of conservationists the symbol of freedom in Dubrovnik is seriously cracking again.
