  Guards on Pile gate
by bonaventura

If you comming in old town from Pile, you will notice our city guards in traditional red-blue costumes. their role was more serious in middle ages, when Dubrovnik Republic was under many pressures and treats, but anyway, just after great diplomacy, faith and moral of its citizent, even so small with territory, it was never conquired till Napoleon and his cheat in 1806(about it somewhere alse, I promise ;-)
Today you will pass young guards and see their fancy costumes, do not hesitate to chat with them or take the pic since(following tradition of liberal town), they are not just puppets - they also speak!!!
Check it out (dont tell I send You LOL )!!!
