The Old City
This historical section of Dubrovnik is situated inside the Pile Gate and features a large number of enchanting buildings.

There is no shortage of great bars and nightclubs to choose from in Dubrovnik, especially in the Old City. A large number of venues also host live music, especially in the summer months.
