Dubrovnik Things to Do: 854 reviews and 1,789 photos


This small metropolos of Croatian tourism, this ancient city with its monumental city gates can ce entered only on foot, through its western Pile Gate or the eastern Ploče Gate; there are two further gates leading in from the old city harbour as well as the one opened in the 19th century to make communication with the northern suburb easier. The last gate mentioned is called the Bu?a Gate, or simply Bu?a ('bu?a' is a lokal word for 'hole'). For a very long time now the old city nucleus has been protected from all kinds of vehicle traffic, so the visitors can enjoy their walks along the city streets and squares without fear of being disturbed.
