Best Game of Thrones tour in Croatia to take before season eight begins
Ever since Bran Stark fell from the tower on that fateful day seven seasons ago people have been flocking to the places where Game of Thrones was shot. From the icy landscape of Iceland to the heritage sites of Spain and the cobbled streets of Croatia, there are tours that take fans to all these places. Perhaps the best tour for the Game of Thrones franchise is no doubt, held in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
The Game of Thrones books and show is grabbing the entire world, as it does every season. In turn, tour operators organize tours that take fans through major sites shown in the show. Guides can tell visitors about what key moments were shot at what site, thus, bringing fans closer to the brutal world that is the Game of Thrones.
Croatia was the first country to see Game of Thrones tours because so much has taken place here. Starting from Pile Square in Old Town, you are taken through the tour of the town that stands as King’s Landing in the television show. You can walk along the way where Arya Stark once hid from the Lannisters. You can also see the 11th-century Lovrijenac Fortress and the city walls where the Battle of the Blackwater played out. Most tours here last 2 – 3 hours but many can be extended and some even customized. Don’t forget to see the Trsteno Arboretum as the setting of the palace gardens of King’s Landing.
While in Croatia, don’t forget to visit the town of Split. Starting from the ancient Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this area was used as Meereen in season four. You have the best views of the Adriatic Sea here as well. The Palace hosts, the throne room, cellars and other places of interest in the show.
No matter what part of Croatia you are headed to, it is extremely important to make sure you are part of a tour if you are visiting because of the Game of Thrones franchise. You won’t be able to thoroughly enjoy your visit here unless you have someone guiding you along the way. Tour guides show you things you will not catch on your own.
