Game of Thrones – King’s Landing
Dubrovnik was the main filming location in Croatia for King’s Landing, a fictional city in Game of Thrones, the famous HBO's television series based on the series of fantasy novels “A Song of Ice and Fire”. For those who have seen the series and are passionate about it, a visit to Dubrovnik will become a beautiful déjà vu because of the way in which it was so well integrated into the setting of the series.
With a base such as that of the Old Town of Dubrovnik, no special measures were necessary for scenery or special effects in order to play the fortified port city of King’s Landing, a stronghold of the Lannister family. Filming grandly exploits the large outer walls, fortifications built over time by human hands, as well as the narrow streets of the old town where several scenes happen during the course of the episodes.
Good to know
There are several sites in the Old City where Game of Thrones was filmed which includes the Pile and Ploče gate, the St. Dominika street, along the city walls includes the Bokar fortress and the Minčeta tower.
The best way to get to know all the filming locations is to look for a game of thrones tour.
