2. Dubrovnik (King's Landing) City Walls
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.
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 (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!
3. Game of Thrones filming location - Pile Bay + Beach
Pile 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.
