Statues on Cathedral Balustrade in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Along the balustrade of the Dubrovnik Cathedral are numerous saint statues. On the right side of the façade are Saint Joseph carrying the Christ child and Saint Blaise holding a staff. Inside the church are relics of the city’s patron saint. These reliquaries are carried during an elaborate procession on February 3, the Feast Day of Saint Blaise. The two-day celebration called Festa svetoga Vlaha is marked by releasing white doves, ringing church bells, carrying flowing banners and people marching in period costumes.
