Discover why the US production company behind the Game of Thrones series picked Dubrovnik as the setting for the capital city of Westeros, King’s Landing.
The Old Town is so stunningly 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 this tour, you will be taken through all the parts of the Old City 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 where the unsuccessful attack on King's Landing, known as the Battle of Blackwater, took place.
The seemingly endless fortified walls will be seen from Lovrijenac fortress where Tyrion Lannister and Varys took a stroll, with Tyrion uttering the immortal words: ''Where is the god of tits and wine''?
Also includes the scene of "The Walk of Shame"
All of the filming locations and commentary from your local guide will be accompanied by large, A4-sized photos that show the screen-shot from the appropriate episode and what took place.
Of course, the people of Dubrovnik are also fiercely proud of their own fascinating history which your guide will also inform you about, alongside the Game of Thrones commentary.
