Tour the Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik


On the Game of Thrones, the iconic red tiled roofs of Croatian city Dubrovnik have been transformed into King’s Landing, the seat of power in the Seven Kingdoms. Now you can actually visit this amazing land. Follow in the footsteps of the show’s characters at these scenic filming locations. Dubrovnik Old Town is King’s Landing. At Tour the Game of Thrones we offer private tours to fans that want to see everything Game of Thrones. We are experts in the field that is everything GoT!

Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site has reprised its starring role for multiple seasons as the filming location for King’s Landing on Game of Thrones. Retrace the route of Arya Stark through the narrow streets as she made her daring escape from the Lannisters, and tour the city walls where Tyrion Lannister helped defend King’s Landing during the epic Battle of the Blackwater.

There are many other areas in Dubrovnik and elsewhere in Croatia that breathed life into the famous television show. Even after the show ended, Game of Thrones, considered one of the best shows of all time, has not shown signs of slowing down. Fans still come to Croatia in droves to get a glimpse at filming locations from this epic show. If you are a fan, it is a must-do at some point.

Here are just a few places that are worth checking out in Game of Thrones land:

Trsteno Arboretum took on life as King’s Landing Palace Gardens. Take a walk through this peaceful park, one of the oldest arboretums in Croatia, exploring the wide variety of exotic plants and thousands of tree species. The park’s idyllic setting served as a key filming location during the show’s third season.

Lovrijenac Fortress became Blackwater Bay. This sturdy defensive site has been helping dissuade enemy armies from attaching Dubrovnik since the 11th century. Given its history, it’s no wonder that the Thrones production team gave the fortress a starring role during the season two Battle of the Blackwater.   It is an amazing site to see.

The Island of Lokrum became Qarth. This enticing island lies just 15 minutes from Dubrovnik by road but feels worlds away, at least on Game of Thrones anyway. Lokrum was used as the city of Qarth, where Daenerys Targaryen spends time during season two. The island’s botanical gardens and former Benedictine monastery both made appearances on the show.

If you want to explore all of the Game of Thrones’ seven kingdoms, you can take a long holiday to do so. Other spectacular filming locations can be found in Iceland, Northern Ireland, Spain, and Malta. We think coming to Croatia will be the highlight of your trip, however. If you are interested in coming to Croatia to see all things Game of Thrones, let Tour the Game of Thrones show you the way.

Highlight of our Croatia trip

Three of us did the full day tour with Tom and Neno, and it was the highlight of our entire Croatia trip. Both tour guides are incredibly knowledgeable about Game of Thrones and the history of the various locations, so you really get a feel for Dubrovnik. Tom made sure we got great photos - he knows which locations and angles will make for the best ones, and he's very patient and willing to take a few! We particularly loved driving out to the gardens to see the locations there - the views and flowers were beautiful, and it's off the beaten path so it was nice to escape the crowds in the city. In addition to being incredibly interesting, Tom and Neno were both thoughtful and really made us feel taken care of. They made sure we got coffee at a great (and affordable) location in the city, worked around our schedule for a lunch break, and even made an extra stop at the bus station so we could buy our tickets to Split on the way back from the gardens, saving us a lot of time and stress! They're just incredibly lovely people, and you won't regret a minute or a dollar spent on this tour
