Game of Thrones Tour in Dubrovnik

If you’re not a Game of Thrones fan, um, why not? Stop reading this right now and go watch! I’ll be here when you’re done. It is the most widely watched show in the world, not to mention the most popular TV show of all time with a six million dollar budget per episode and epic film locations.

King's Landin

One of those epic locations happens to be Dubrovnik, Croatia which serves as the capital of Westeros, King’s Landing.

Again, if you are not watching, you may want to reconsider your life’s choices.

I found a private tour for myself and a group of people who were all in town to attend a wedding. We are all big time GOT dorks enthusiasts, as was the guide Antun, which was super fun.

The Major Locations

The Red Keep

The Red Keep Dubrovnik

This is actually Fort Lovrijenic which looks down at the walled old town of Dubrovnik. It’s a bit of a hike to get up here but well worth it. The views are stunning!  Many scenes shot here including Joffrey’s name ceremony and Cersei’s “power is power” speech to Littlefinger.

Battle of the Blackwater

The water just between the fort and the walls were used in the Battle of the Blackwater.

This pier was used in many scenes including when Littlefinger tried to convince Sansa to escape from King’s Landing.

These little doors represented a poor area of town where the slaying of King Robert’s bastards took place.

The City Walls

The walls around Dubrovnik are often used in various ways.  One section served as the House of the Undying in Qarth. Varys and Tyrion plotted their battle strategy looking out from the walls.

I’m just plotting where to have my next cocktail!

The Joffrey Riots

That infamous scene where the King and his party walked down these steps and riots ensued.

The steps below were used when somebody would stand on the top and speak to a crowd. One example was when anti-Joffrey sentiment was rising in the city.

The Atonement Steps

Ahh…Cersei’s walk of shame. One of the most memorable scenes of the series. We were sort of dying to re-enact this.  At this point Antun had a surprise…props!  Some swords including Arya’s sword, needle and best of all, the shame bell.

I had to play with Needle. “Stick them with the pointy end!”

This tour had a lot of real history too which was very interesting.
