When the US production company behind the Game of Thrones series picked Dubrovnik as the setting for the capital city of Westeros, King’s Landing, they could not have chosen better.
The Old Town is so striking that it seems to have leapt directly from the pages of George R. R Martin’s addictive series of novels and it is no coincidence that Dubrovnik was also a capital city in its own right – of the now extinct Republic of Ragusa.
On this tour, you will be taken through all the parts of the Old City where some of the most memorable scenes from the ongoing cultural phenomenon were filmed, including: The Pile Gate where King Joffrey was faced with a citizens’ riot and pelted with dung, and the Lovrijenac fort where the unsuccessful attack on King’s Landing – the Battle of Blackwater – took place.
The seemingly endless fortified walls will be seen from Lovrijenac fort* where Tyrion Lannister and Varys took a stroll, with Tyrion uttering the immortal words: ”Where is the god of tits and wine”?
All of the filming locations, including some from the latest 8th season, and commentary from your local guide will be accompanied by A4-sized photos that show the screen-shot from the appropriate episode. You may even hear stories and gossip from behind the scenes as some of our guides were Game of Thrones extras and stand-ins.
