Game of Thrones is an American drama television series. It became the most-watched HBO television program in the network’s history, and attracted a wide and extremely active fan base around the world.

 

The series is being filmed in Belfast and other cities in the United Kingdom, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Malta, Morocco, Spain and the United States.

1. Dubrovnik - probably the most important on our list because it served as many as 5 seasons as a filming location for the capital of the Seven Kingdoms. The old town was truly a great base for filming the series, especially the city walls and the many narrow streets in the very center of the city. If you decide to visit the locations where this popular series was filmed, you certainly do not want to miss visiting Lovrijenac, which in the series became the Red Fortress, the seat of the King of Andals and the First People. Many famous scenes are filmed here - in the first episode of the second season, when King Joffrey celebrates his name day and a scene in which Cersei talks to Little Finger about Arya's escape from King's Grudobran. Some of the other famous filming locations in Dubrovnik are Pile, Zidine and the Minčeta tower, which was used to film the House of the Immortals in the second season of the series.

 

2. The island of Lokrum - a small, beautiful island not far from Dubrovnik. Lokrum was used to record scenes in the trading town of Qarth that can be seen in the scene where Daenarys is with the experts in the gardens of Qarth which are actually the gardens of an old 12th century Benedictine monastery. A special treat for fans is the Visitor Center within the monastery which has an exhibition dedicated to the Game of Thrones, with an original replica of the Iron Throne.


3. Split - all scenes filmed in this city were filmed inside Diocletian's Palace, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Probably the most memorable scenes are where Daenerys had her capital in Meereen and the room where she kept her dragons - both filmed inside Diocletian's cellars. Fans of the series who visit Split during the tourist season have come to their senses, because in the ancient palace built by the Roman emperor Diocletian around 300, they can walk through the renovated tunnels and basement. The Game of Thrones Museum has recently opened in Split. The museum offers a complete story, and the interior begins with a series of photographs taken during the shooting of scenes at locations in Croatia. There are also several themed rooms in the museum, each connected to one of the main characters. The story is framed around their life-size figures.


4. Klis - 10 kilometers from Split is the municipality of Klis and the fortress which also served as a location for the filming of the largest of the three slave-owning cities, Meereen. On the tower, recall a scene when Daenerys conquered Meereen as freed slaves hailed her as their new queen. In addition, you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view that extends to the whole of Split and its surroundings.


5. Trogir - Trogir's Old Town also served as another perfect location for filming the Game of Thrones. In the series, Trogir was the trading port of Qartha where Qartha experts imprisoned Khaleesa's dragons. Also do not miss to visit the beautiful monastery of St. Dominica where some of the scenes in the series were also filmed.


6. Šibenik - became part of the series only in the fifth season when the producers of the series decided to use it as a set for the city of Bravoos. Bravoos are skilled sailors and swordsmen as well as the old Šibenik people, which helped the authenticity of the shooting location. Relive the scene where Arya follows Bravoose and Meryna Tranta in front of the Cathedral of St. Jacob.
