At Game of Thrones Filming Locations in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Viewers (worshippers) of the TV series Game of Thrones will understand the thrill of visiting the real-world filming locations of its scenes set in Dubrovnik, Croatia. 

While the city blew us away anyway with its war-struck orange terracotta tiles, impressive stone and wild seas, it seemed perfect posing as King's Landing and parts of Qarth with high-rising cliffs and a stunning ancient city wall overlooking the Adriatic sea (i.e Blackwater Bay in the series).



With the help of screenshots from Game of Thrones Season 1, Season 2, Season 3 handy, we set out looking for exact locations to reconstruct scenes. We didn't bump into King Joffrey, Daenerys or Tyrion Lannister but surely walked where they did!


Scene: King Joffrey causes a riot in public when returning from Marcela's send off (Location: Pile Gate)




Scene: Tyrion Lannister and Varys talking like "intelligent" human beings (Location: City Wall overlooking Fort Lovrijenak)



Scene: King Joffrey's naming ceremony (Location: Fort Lovrijenak)




Scene: Cersie Lannister speaking with Peter Baylish - Power is Power (Location: Fort Lovrijenak)




Scene: Spice King refusing ships to Daenerys Targaryen (Location: Rector's Palace)






Scene: Marcela being sent off to Dom (Location: Through Park from Pile Gate) 



Scene: Shae and Sansa with Peter Baelish (At the quay)



Scene: Gold cloaks killing babies (Location: At the bay to the left of Fort Lovrijenak)



Scene: Anti-Joffrey sentiments brewing in the streets during Tyrion's investigation of wild fire (Location: Placa Street as seen from City Walls)



Scene: Daenerys Targeryn at House of Undying (Location: Minceta Tower)
