Game of Thrones Tours in Dubrovnik
The pearl of the Adriatic
If you’ve never been to Croatia, you should know that it is spectacular and amazing. The city of Dubrovnik is a prime example of such beauty. Crystal clear waters glisten under the sun. Boats, one of the primary forms of transportation, dot the sea in every direction. The medieval limestone walls of the Stari Grad that safeguard the city are impressive. The Pearl of the Adriatic is seductive and special and it only continues to grow in popularity.
Game of Thrones fans know this place as King’s Landing. It has also served as a film set for Robin Hood: Origins and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, drawing even more attention to the city. Dubrovnik also hosts UberBoat and the country’s first underwater winery in the nearby Peljesac peninsula. It’s so easy to see why the spotlight is shining on Dubrovnik right now.
Dubrovnik is a city that has recovered from the war damage it suffered during the 1990s and visitors have returned to this tranquil city. Nestled between the Adriatic and Dinaric Alps, it’s an accessible and affordable city break for many European travelers.
A walk around the ancient city walls and a cable car ride up to Mount Srd are definitely touristy but they are so worth it. The cable car ride is best done early in the morning to beat the heat, avoid the number of incoming cruisers in the middle of the day and is a great way to introduce yourself to the Old Town. Old Town is remarkable at sunset when pink and orange hues paint the sky.
There are so many things to see and do in Dubrovnik, including a guided tour of all the Game of Thrones sets and scenery. You will feel like you are on the television show yourself.
