“Pile Gate”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Main entrance to the Old City and packed with tourists. Shops and stalls outside selling water etc were typically overpriced as you'd expect, but it the place the buses drop you off and collect you so quite coinvenient

“Wonderful entrance to the old city”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Quite awe inspiring to enter the Old Town this way; try to avoid the crowds by going either early or later to avoid the cruise ship hoards.

Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is a beautiful city entrance. Parts of it have been featured in Game of Thrones as Kings Landing.

“Western Entrance to the Old Town (Od Pila)”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This entrance to the Old Town (Stari Grad) is very interesting with its ornate bridge and entranceway, that has a statue of St Blaise the patron saint of the town. Not only are there stairs down to meet the top end of the Stradun (Placa), there is also a ramp that curves around to meet the bottom of the stairs. Walking across the bridge to the entrance there are now gardens below where the moat used to be and here there is a great view across the walls and out to the Adriatic Sea. Once inside the gate the handsome Stradun ( main street) and the Big Onofrio's Fountain greet you. A fitting way to start you time in this historic and interesting town, by coming through this medieval gothic structure built in 1537.

“Old City Splendour”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Everything about Dubrovnik is wonderful and sad at the same time. The main industry is now tourism so all of the business owners have to make enough money in 4 months to last them all year. People kept warning us about how expensive Dubrovnik is but the value for your dollar is still fantastic and the city is truly wonderful as are the locals. We stayed in Ingrid's apartments, a short walk to old town, and it was a wonderful place to stay.
