The Dubrovnik Game Of Thrones Locations You Have To Visit

The best Game of Thrones filming locations in Dubrovnik Croatia

Game of Thrones was a completely spectacular tv show that gripped worldwide audiences and got everyone invested in who should be the true King (or Queen) of Kings Landing. Our most recent holiday to Croatia meant that we got the opportunity to go to Dubrovnik and explore the real-life settings and filming locations featured heavily on Game of Thrones. We travelled with Tui, luckily it's a short-haul flight, but I've got long haul flight's covered with lots of tips if you're going further afield  

We booked a Tui operated excursion, as you can imagine there are hundreds of Game of Thrones tours in operation in Dubrovnik, the one we went on certainly wasn't the cheapest but it was of exceptional quality so here are my favourite places we got to visit

Kings Landing 

Kings Landing Game of Thrones Dubrovnik

Where all the drama takes place! The home of Kings Landing and the Iron Throne everyone so fiercely fights from, this particular picture was taken from inside Fort Lovrijenac or the Red Keep as you'll be more commonly used to calling it, so many scenes were filmed inside here and a good tour guide will walk you through some of the more memorable scenes, as you can see the view from the top is absolutely stunning

The Red Keep

Countless scenes were filmed in the Red Keep from Joffrey's name day tournament to the bay directly in front of it holding the climactic scenes from the Battle of Blackwater. Some tour you will have to pay an additional price to enter the Red Keep but I recommend finding one where the price is included, they usually give you the ticket so you can get a reduced price for the city walls

Blackwater Bay

Right at the foot of Fort Lovrijenac is Blackwater Bay this particular area is where they famously drowned Robert Baratheons bastards after his death to protect the Lannisters reign in Kings Landing

Shame Steps

Shame Steps Game of Thrones

During the latter seasons of Game of Thrones, Cersei has taken quite a tumble from her ivory tower and finds and is forced to walk naked through Kings Landing to atone for her sins while the city residents surrounded her. The Shame steps are iconic and one of the more sought after locations from Game of Thrones fans

The Iron Throne

And finally a huge reveal - I am officially Queen of the iron throne. Only joking! There's a beautiful island called Lokrum, it's the filming location of Quarth but nestled inside is also a replica of the Iron Throne for you to imagine being the leader yourself

There are hundreds of other locations in Dubrovnik but these are my own personal highlights.
