“Any trip to Dubrovnik has to include Pile gate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Not as clean as the other parts we visited as the water seemed to be a dumping ground where the Kayak school were based which was a shame. However once past the gate there are chemists, more traditional croatian bakeries etc and just further a hotel (dont recall the name)

“Pile Gate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The old city of Dubrovnik only has three entrances and the Pile Gate is the impressive main land gate. You cross the drawbridge and take the ramp down into the city just like a knight in the middle ages. The high walls and narrow sloping pathway are great examples of defensive architecture. It can get very crowded in the high season and slippery in the rain.

“An impressive entrance to the city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Another wonderful meeting place that is full of great photo opportunities. Check out the Elvis impersonator that performs at the restaurant adjacent to the gate.

“A spectacular gateway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Such a narrow gateway to such a wonderful city. Outside you're in the 21st century, cross the drawbridge and you're plunged into the medieval fortress. It's a great experience, although it can get very congested in the height of the season.
