Amazing architectural entrance into the old town, it is easy to see why the old town was easy to defend over the years

It's the main entrance of the walled city. For the GOT followers ofocurse this place would have a lot relevance. The place is well decorated and lit.

The place looks Old although renovated and the atmosphere is amazing. Walking around the small streets of the old town is a nice experience while visiting small shops. Restaurants are full of delicious food and prices are cheap.

The gate itself is an interesting piece of architecture but may not be able to hold your attention. There are streams of people coming and going because the gate serves as the entrance to the Old Town of Dubrovnik. If you have the time to...More

Interesting and beautiful old walled part of the city. We had an excellent guide and that's always helpful. Walking distance from the cable car.

This is the main gate that most enter to visit Old Town Dubrovnik and it is quite the entrance. It's quite busy so there are lanes for going in and lanes for coming out.

It is really exciting seeing this gate for the first time and wondering what lays hidden on the other side. It is like entering a fairytale with the drawbridge, arched gate and the walls of the city. You have to be early though if you...More

We stayed only 5 mins away so went through this gate so many times. Do make sure you stop and look up as you are ‘ funnelled ‘ through the gate, it is worth being pushed for. It is always very busy whatever the time...More

Try to get here at a time when not so busy. It has a good system for getting people in and out of the city but still gets very busy. It gets you into the old town and only pedestrians unless you pay a GREAT...More

I am sure they would take euros. I do not have a cost, but don't feel it would be very much. I cannot help further as we took a bus to Dubrovnik then caught a local bus to the Pile Gate and it was very inexpensive.
