One of the most amazing shows on television right now is HBO’s Game of Thrones.  This mystical show is an adaptation of a series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin.  It is filmed in many locations including Dubrovnik, Croatia where you can join exclusive Game of Thrones tours to see where this epic show is filmed.

Set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, Game of Thrones has several plot lines and a large cast.  For those who follow the show and are fans, having the chance to tour some of the popular places where the show is filmed is a once in a lifetime opportunity.  The show is filmed in many locations in Europe, including many scenes that occurred in Dubrovnik and around Croatia.

Game of Thrones is a massive production when filming takes place.  Its scenery can be considered a main character in the storyline, and Croatia is proud to have many scenes filmed here.  When you come to Dubrovnik, you will recognize many of the show’s settings instantly.  Many episodes were filmed here including King’s Landing, a fictional city and one of Game of Thrones main city settings.  For those who have seen the series and are passionate about it, a visit to Dubrovnik will become instant déjà vu because of the way it was so well integrated into the setting of the series.  King’s Landing is the home of the Lannister Family, one of the show’s main family’s at war.

With its main area of Old Town of Dubrovnik used for the filming of the show, there were not a lot of special effects used in order for this town to play the fortified port city of King’s Landing.  Filming in Old Town exploits the large outer walls, which were built by human hands over time, as well as the narrow streets of the old town where several scenes happened during the course of the series.

The Old Town of Dubrovnik was founded in the 7th Century by refugees from Roman colony Epidaurum and is a world heritage site due to its historical significance.  As soon as you cross over the drawbridge and walk through the Pile Gate you will find yourself entering an ancient city that is full of amazing architecture and surrounded by the Mediterranean on one side and amazing walls on the other.  It is truly a dazzling place and many areas of this ancient city were featured on Game of Thrones.

Great touring company: flexible and professional

We were visiting Dubrovnik for a day on the cruise ship P&O Aurora and whilst it had been quite a while since we last visited we wanted to do something a bit different than just walk around the walls. After looking at all the various options available and considering a few tour companies we decided that this company would offer a great tour and our pre tour correspondence with them helped to convince us that we'd made a correct decision. even when we had fairly late notice that our cruise itinerary had changed which meant arriving 3 days earlier than originally planned they were able to accomodate this change. We also changed our meeting place as the ship was tendering us in to the Old Harbour so our guide, Karmen, met us there instead of us needing to walk through to the Pile Gate. There were 10 of us in our tour group, some familiar with GoT and others less so but the tour was fascinating to all the people in our group regardless of their familiarity with the story. Karmen was excellent and took her time in showing us around Dubrovnik with, of course, a special emphasis on the places where particular scenes from GoT were filmed and showing us the contrast between the actual site and the TV version. We enjoyed a good walk around the City and never felt crowded as Karmen mainly kept us away from the very busy centre (there were about 3 other large cruise ships in that day) and after we'd finished our tour here we caught the ferry across to Lokrum Island where there was more GoT things including the opportunity to sit on the Iron Throne. All of us were absolutely delighted with our tour here and would strongly recommend this company to anyone visiting Dubrovnik.
