Meet your guide in Dubrovnik’s Old Town, and set off on a stroll, seeing some of the filming locations used in Game of Thrones – it’s a unique experience.
Dubrovnik as King’s Landing
The popular HBO TV series, adapted from George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, documents a war waged by several noble families for the Seven Kingdom’s Iron Throne in the mythical land of Westeros. While the series itself is filmed in various European locations, Dubrovnik is now the official setting for King’s Landing – the capital of the Seven Kingdoms realm. When the US production company behind the Game of Thrones series picked Dubrovnik as the settling for the capital city of Westeros, King’s Landing, they could not have chosen better. The Old Town is so stunningly striking that it seems to have leapt directly from the paged of George R.R. Martin’s addictive series of novels. It is no coincidence that Dubrovnik was also a capital city in its own right – of the now extinct Republic of Ragusa.
Visit all key GoT shooting locations
One of the reasons why Dubrovnik was chosen to represent King’s Landing was producers’ desire to show more external shots of the coastal city surrounded by the city walls which made Dubrovnik a perfect candidate. On this tour you will be taken through all the parts of the Old City where some of the most memorable scenes from the ongoing cultural phenomenon were filmed, including these locations:
*The Pile Gate where King Joffrey was faced with citizens’ riot and pelted with dung.
*The Lovrijenac fort was used as a setting for location known as a Red Keep, where king Joffrey celebrated his name day.
*The seemingly endless fortified walls will be seen from Lovrijenac fortress where Tyrion Lannister and Varys took a stroll, with Tyrion uttering the immortal words: „Where is the god of tits and wine?“
From Purple Wedding to Walk of Shame
