At Game of Thrones Filming Locations in Dubrovnik, Croatia

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

While the city blew us away 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!
