Poljana GunduliŠeva

(Gundulic Square)


The square behind the cathedral, GunduliŠeva poljana, is the site of the city's morning fruit and vegetable market. In the middle stands Ivan Rendic's statue of Ivan GunduliŠ (1589 - 1638), the poet whose curly locks adorn one side of the 50Kn banknote. GunduliŠ's epic poem Osman, celebrating the victories of the Poles over the Turks, revealed a typical Ragusan paradox: despite growing rich through trade with the Ottoman state, the locals always sympathized with the empire's enemies, especially if they were Slavs.
