knowing that the dragon is the symbol of the city you cannot miss it and the story revolves around it is very funny and it's cool to have your picture taken with a dragon.

Almost in the city centre, there lies a statue of a flying dragon and a man fighting with it. Also a statue of Queen is present here. Looks a good place with lot of shops around to buy souvenirs. A must visit place in Klagenfurt...

I mean, if you're going to Klagenfurt, you're gonna see it. It's RIGHT THERE. Missing it would be like traveling to Keystone, South Dakota and somehow skipping Mt. Rushmore. It's the icon of the city! (Also you gotta love the placement of the statues here....More

It is a great place and it is connected with old legend that we heard from our tourist guide. It is good to take some photos there too.

The monument and story behind is nice to see if you pass by especially since there is no entry price. Too bad no pannel with info.

Though I must admit it is an interesting attraction, it is worth seeing only if you are in Klagenfurt. I would not go a long way to see it. Location - Neue Platz. But the city itself is cute and has a quaint charm.
