It is very busy here as most tourists enter via this gate, so take your time before entering to enjoy the view of the gate and the walls, but don't linger near the gate as you will stop the flow fo people, and be crushed

The main entrance of Old Town Dubrovnik. Located near bus shelter (bus stop : Pile Gate). Not so many people walk there during the winter, sometimes there's an old man sells fresh flowers.

This is the nearest entrance to the wall visit ticket sales point. It is also nearest to the Hilton imperial Dubrovnik hotel. It is nice and the adjacent area too, but an integral part of the old city which is a jewel!

Enter the gate to a taste of ancient history. We enjoyed walking through the gate and rounding the corner into the old city. Come before the summer for less crowds

Main gate to old city. Always crowded but impressive. Must see at late night including whole city because of quietness in side of city walls.

This is very famous entrance to the old town of Dubrovnik. You will almost have a feeling of entering in the world of Game Of Thrones. Once you enter the gate you are about to explore one of the most beautiful old towns of Europe. We loved the old town and this is a must visit place.

Impressive walled city with a majestic entrance seen during the day and in the evening with lights illuminating the wall.

Good gate, quite massive with stairs inside. Seems different to other similar gated leading to old towns, regarding the size and complexity.
