About Pile Gate, Dubrovnik

This attraction can easily be considered as the gateway to Dubrovnik or deep-rooted, rich history. This is where you are dropped off at, in case you travel to city by a bus. Other than this fact, there is not much to this attraction, besides some intricate art work and structuring. This is also where most of the city tours commence, especially the Dubrovnik Old Town Walk. It is busy almost all through the day, so it is very unlikely for you to be the only person here.

Pile Gate, Dubrovnik Reviews - Write a Review

  • October 2017. The main entrance {Ploce is the other} to the Old Town. Major bus stop of course. Crazy busy very often. So busy they have a one way system in and out [not that most people observe it] Expect to get the attention of the Tour salespeople. And Game of Thrones fans love it. Oh. The bus tickets are interesting. 15 kuna buys an unlimited travel ticket. But it only lasts for 59 minutes.

  • When in Dubrovnik, walking the wall around the old city is kind of mandatory, but do make sure to get there early, before the large groups arrive, or you will just see selfie sticks and the backs of other people. The views of the old town are great from the top of the perimeter walls, but the place is totally overwhelmed with tourists (makes me feel kind of guilty for being one of them). The Pile Gate itself is nothing special, but it's where you get to the wall walk.

  • UNESCO world heritage city, the ancient city of Ragusa (now Dubrovnik) is an incredible location and a must see! The Pile Gate is the North Entry into the walled city. Make sure you check it out after dark as well, there are some great scenes with the St Lawrence Fort in the background. As a plus for Game of Thrones Fans, The ramps inside the gate have been used in the series.

  • Entry into old town, next to the main tour bus unloading spot. Get through it, turn left to get your tickets for the wall and watch from above how The masses roll through. A similar gate is in the other side of town, just go down the main drag. The other side is less crowded.

  • One of the best entrances to an old city. Really makes you feel like you're living in a time long ago. Keep an eye out for a guitar/bongo drum duo at the gates! The only minus is the horde of tourists constabtly there making it difficult to navigate.
