1. Park Gradac

Purple Wedding

Game of Thrones filming location in Dubrovnik - Gradac parkThis is our local park with the most beautiful view. It overlooks the Old Town and gives you the perfect overall impression of King’s Landing.

 
In the series, Gradac was the venue for Joeffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell’s so-called “purple wedding”. It was not only the location where their big wedding feast took place, but also the spot where King Jeoffrey took his final breath.
 
So, if you get tired of the sun and the heat, look for shelter in the shade of Gradac pine trees. Take a stroll through the park, relax, get some fresh air and let that first impression of King’s Landing sink in.

2. Dubrovnik (King's Landing) City Walls

Visit fort Bokar, Lovrijenac & Minčeta

GAME OF THRONES FILMING LOCATIONS IN DUBROVNIK LovrijenacDubrovnik city walls are a must-see for any person visiting Dubrovnik. However, we suggest you to kill two birds with one stone since Dubrovnik city walls were used as a filming location in almost every season of the series.

Most popular spots were three forts: Bokar, Lovrijenac and Minčeta.

Fort Lovrijenac (the Red Keep)

Fort Lovrijenac was the place where the Lannisters hosted a tourney on king Jeoffrey’s name day. Furthermore, it was a place where Bronn proclaimed his loyalty to Tyrion, where Cersei blackmailed a lot of people, and where schemes and plotting against Tyrells started.

 
Fort Bokar 

Because fort Bokar overlooks the Blackwater Bay, it was the place where Tyrion and Varys tried to think of the best strategy to defend King’s Landing in the Battle of Blackwater. Moreover, it was featured in the scene where king Tommen had a lovely one-on-one chat with his mother, and it was also where Loras Tyrell was arrested for his “perverse behaviour”. Finally, in the last season, it was the spot where Cersei found out that the White Walkers have managed to breach through the Wall.

Fort Minčeta

Fort Minčeta was used in two scenes. The first one was the scene where Daenerys came to the House of Undying to look for her stolen dragons. The second one was when Jon Snow was released from prison for killing Daenerys in the final season.

IMPORTANT INFO: 

You need a ticket to enter the city walls. 

However, we suggest that you buy a Dubrovnik Card because it costs just a tiny bit more, but it gets you a “hall pass” for many sites, museums and even local transport (so you actually save money in the long run).

It also gets you a 20% discount for the Game of Thrones-themed escape room! 

I love discounts! Take me there!

3. Pile Bay + Beach

See King's Landing from the sea perspective and visit Lokrum Island

GAME OF THRONES FILMING LOCATIONS IN DUBROVNIK PILE BAYPile Bay and the nearby beach were probably the most used locations in the Game of Thrones series.

Pile Bay is actually the Blackwater Bay. It is also the place where princess Myrcella set sail to Dorne and where Sansa and Shae were having a conversation while watching ships. Additionally, this was the spot where Cersei was waiting for Myrcella’s return from Dorne, and where Jon Snow said his goodbyes to Arya, Sansa and Bran.

In case you want to linger there for a while and enjoy the monumental view of the bay, go to one of the two nearby cafes – Dubravka or The Kop.

4. Dubrovnik Old Town

GAME OF THRONES FILMING LOCATIONS IN DUBROVNIK OLD TOWNPile Gate

Pile Gate is one of the main entrances to the Old Town. You can easily recognize it from the scene of the royal procession where poor and hungry people turned on King Joeffrey. Moreover, Pile Gate served as a setting for Jamie Lannister’s unnoticed return to King’s Landing.

Museum Rupe

Museum Rupe is an ethnographic museum in front of which Oberyn confessed to Tyrion that he came to seek vendetta for his dead sister and her children.

Jesuite Stairs

Jesuite Stairs were the setting for the infamous Walk of Shame. You will almost be able to hear the ringing of the “shame bell” when you get there. The only thing missing would be scandalously naked queen Cersei.

Rector’s Palace

Rector’s Palace and a part of Stradun appear in a few scenes. Firstly, the interior of the Rector’s palace is featured in a scene where Daenerys came to ask the Spice King for ships. Moreover, you could see Rector’s palace from outside when Arya and The Hound returned to the city and managed to get to the Red Keep unnoticed. Furthermore, a part of Stradun appears in the final season when Daenerys decides to ignore the surrendering bell and burns King’s Landing to the ground.

St Dominic’s Street

Coming into the Old Town from Ploče gate, there is a small bridge-like passage that served as the entrance to the Red Keep. Further on, there is an oval set of stairs in front of Dominican Monastery where the protests against the Lannisters started.

5. Kingdom of Qarth - Lokrum Island

take a day trip to this magical island
Lokrum island filming of Game of ThronesThis location is a glimpse into the Kingdom of Qarth. It was where Daenerys attended a garden party hosted by Xaro Xhoan Daxos.
 
The filming locations used as a party venue were the botanical gardens and the former Benedictine monastery situated on a small island Lokrum right across from the Old Town (15 min by boat).
 
Make your visit to Lokrum a day trip. Bring something to eat and drink so you can have a small picnic, bring a towel and a swimming suit so you can swim and enjoy the clear sea. Explore the island which is also a natural reserve, pet some bunnies, take a photo on the Iron Throne, and perhaps even visit some non-GOT-related sights.

6. Hotel Belvedere

Game of Thrones filming location in Dubrovnik - BelvedereVisit this abandoned hotel’s exterior and accompanying rocky beach in the afternoon.

The sunset from there is amazing and the view of the Old Town is even more breathtaking!

What was once an outdoor restaurant area of this former Yugoslavian hotel, is now an improvised football “field” for local children. The field has served as a battleground for the trial by combat between Oberyn Martell and the Mountain.

Unfortunately, we all know how that one ended. Bring some flowers in Oberyn’s honor when you visit!

7. Trsteno Arboretum

Trsteno filming of Game of Thrones If you ever imagined what it would be like to be Lady Olenna Tyrell, this is a place for you. Cross that wish off your bucket list and visit her residence in Trsteno arboretum (20 min drive from Dubrovnik)! Any scene where Olenna is walking, scheming and plotting surrounded by beautiful flowers and a nice view – was filmed there. Naturally, she was joined by the rest of the gang: Loras, Margery, Sansa, Tyrion, Varys, Littlefinger and Shae.

IMPORTANT INFO: You will need to buy a ticket at the entrance: 50kn adults, 30kn children and students.
