Pile Gate, Dubrovnik

4.3
Cross the stone bridge to Pile Gate, a grand entrance on the western wall of the city's Old Town. Below the bridge, notice the green space that once served as the city trench. Renaissance arches outflank the outer and inner gates. See the two statues of St. Blaise, the city's patron saint. The interior statue is the work of the well-known 20th-century Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. Next to it, look for the old door, dating back to 1460. During the republican era, the city pulled up the drawbridge each night. Now, the gates of Dubrovnik are always open to visitors.

  • If u want to visit old town, just say to taxi driver Pile Gate - this is the entrance point.. the rest is pure magic - enjoy! It is must to go for a walk at the wall - you can buy ticket when you enter in the old city on the left. Then it is must to walk around the small streets inside - you can get lost, but you will find amazing views of the city. There is a lot of places accepting only cash, so be prepared.
  • It,s like no other place you have been, is unique in many ways. You will not see it in one day so keep going back, you won't be disappointed. Best time to visit Croatia is early or late season when the weather is not too hot for walking. 23c.to 25c.still hot enough to get a tan. Have a good time. Enjoy.
