When the US production company behind the Game of Thrones series picked Dubrovnik as the setting for the capital city of Westeros, King’s Landing, they could not have chosen better.
The Old Town is so striking that it seems to have leapt directly from the pages of George R. R Martin’s addictive series of novels and it is no coincidence that Dubrovnik was also a capital city in its own right – of the now extinct Republic of Ragusa.
On the GOT guided walking tour, you will be taken through all the parts of Dubrovnik Old Town where some of the most memorable scenes from the ongoing cultural phenomenon were filmed, including: The Pile Gate where King Joffrey was faced with a citizens’ riot and pelted with dung, the Lovrijenac fort (menacing Red Keep), and the place where the unsuccessful attack on King’s Landing – the Battle of Blackwater – took place.
The seemingly endless fortified walls will be seen from Lovrijenac fort where Tyrion Lannister and Varys took a stroll, with Tyrion uttering the immortal words: ”Where is the god of tits and wine” and the views of the location of the shocking Purple Wedding that set in motion so many plot twists. Jesuit Stairs is the place of the infamous Walk of Shame where you will almost certainly hear someone yelling “Shame” when you get there. The only thing missing would be scandalously naked queen Cersei.
All Dubrovnik Game of Thrones filming locations, including ones from the final 8th season, are accompanied by commentary from a local guide with detailed scene descriptions and actual stills and images of scenes from the exact episodes they made an appearance on.
Throughout the tour, you can also hear fascinating stories of Dubrovnik history and interesting tidbits and gossip from behind the scenes about sets and actors as some of our guides were Game of Thrones extras, stand-ins and members of the production crew.
No do-it-yourself self-tour of the GOT locations can beat hearing insider stories and hilarious first-hand anecdotes from the people that worked on the show.
Have a blast recollecting the best moments of the show and take home some unique memories with you! If you have watched the series and you are passionate about GOT, this is a perfect thing to do while visiting Dubrovnik.
