Stockholm, Sweden: Sankt Goran statue

Stockholm is a lovely city, and one of the reasons is that there aren't any dragons running loose on the streets. Sankt Goran has taken care of that.

He's saluted with this sculpture, which has been in place for a little more than 100 years. Goran is shown battering one of those pesky critters in a small square in Old Town. A wooden statue preceded it, and that must have been a remarkable site considering the detail involved.

Look for it in Kopmanbrinken, a street in the district.
