St. Blaise Church

St Blaise Church

Ever since the year 972, when people began to celebrate it, the feast day of St Blaise, Dubrovnik patron saint, has been a quite special festival, typical of Dubrovnik. A festive procession in Stradun is organised with a large number of congregation members taking part. A series of church and secular concerts, exhibitions, book presentations and theatre guest performances are dedicated to the patron saint of Dubrovnik, whose statues look at us from the city walls and gates and whose caring hand guards Dubrovnik on his palm. More about church here.

Position

In the heart of ancient city of Dubrovnik, just across Sponza Pallace.

UNESCO inscription – St. Blaise Feast

The festivity of Saint Blaise, the patron of Dubrovnik is transmitted and recreated by the inhabitants of Dubrovnik, providing them with a sense of identity and continuity and strengthening their solidarity and friendship. Check for more info on UNESCO site

Statue

The golden statue of St Blaise holding a model of the Town from 15th century is placed at the main altar of the Dubrovnik’s St Blaise Church and it is one of the precious sculptures of the Dubrovnik art in general, made by unknown sculptor from Dubrovnik school.
