1. Game of Thrones filming location - Park Gradac

Purple Wedding

Game-of-Thrones-filming-location-Dubrovnik-GradacThis is our local park with the most beautiful view overlooking the Old Town. 

 
In the Game of Thrones series, Gradac was the filming location for Joeffrey and Margaery’s so-called “purple wedding”. Not only is this their wedding feast venue, but also the spot where King Jeoffrey took his final breath.
 
If you get tired of the sun, the heat and the crowds, by all means 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 impressions of King’s Landing sink in.

2. Dubrovnik (King's Landing) City Walls

Visit fort Bokar, Lovrijenac & Minčeta

Dubrovnik 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 Game of Thrones.

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

Fort Lovrijenac (the Red Keep)

Fort Lovrijenac (or the Red Keep from Game of Thrones show) was the filming location for numerous scenes. For one thing, celebration of Jeoffrey’s name day was here. Also this is where all the schemes and plotting against Tyrells started.

Fort Bokar 

Since fort Bokar is part of the Dubrovnik city walls it was used a lot as a filming location for Game of Thrones. As it overlooks the Blackwater Bay, this was the place where Tyrion and Varys tried to think of the best strategy to defend King’s Landing in the Battle of Blackwater. Finally, in the last season, on this spot was where Cersei found out that the White Walkers have managed to breach through the Wall.

Fort Minčeta

Fort Minčeta (or House of the Undying from Game of Thrones) was the filming location for two important scenes. One of them was Daenerys coming to the House of Undying to look for her stolen dragons. Second was Jon Snow being released from prison for killing Daenerys in the final season.


Important Info for Dubrovnik City Walls: 

You need a ticket to enter the Dubrovnik city walls and visit the most iconic Game of Thrones filming locations.

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. Game of Thrones filming location - Pile Bay + Beach

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

Game-of-Thrones-filming-location-Dubrovnik-PILEPile Bay and the nearby beach are probably the most used locations in filming the Game of Thrones series.

Pile Bay is actually the Blackwater Bay, in fact this is where the famous battle took place. It is the scene place of all the boats departing from King’s Landing.

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. Game of Thrones filming location - Dubrovnik Old Town

Game-of-Thrones-filming-location-Dubrovnik-entrance.Pile Gate

Pile Gate is one of the main entrances to the Old Town. In fact, you can easily recognise this filming location from the famous riot scene in Game of Thrones when the poor and hungry people turn on King Joeffrey. 

Museum Rupe

Museum Rupe is an ethnographic museum. In Game of Thrones,  Oberyn confessed to Tyrion on this filming location that he came to seek vendetta for his dead sister and her children.

Jesuite Stairs

Jesuite Stairs is the place of the infamous Walk of Shame, one of the most popular filming locations & scenes in Game of Thrones. 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 is a filming locations for a few Game of Thrones scenes. In particular, the interior of the Rector’s palace features in a scene where Daenerys comes to ask the Spice King for ships. 

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
