The celebrated HBO TV series, adapted from George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, follows a war between several noble families for the Iron Throne in the mythical land of Westeros. While the series itself is filmed in various European locations, Dubrovnik is now the official setting for King’s Landing – the capital of the Seven Kingdoms realm. Discover Dubrovnik through its best selling tour — the Game of Thrones Tour with the insider guidance of a filming set extra who impersonated a peasant in the uprising against the hated King Joffrey! Follow us on a 1:45 hour or 2:45 hour tour and mark your appearance in The Realm of Seven kingdoms. We will start our tour in the Old Town of Dubrovnik, location chosen to represent Kings Landing – the capital of Westeros. It is no coincidence that Dubrovnik was also a capital city in its own right – of the now extinct Republic of Ragusa. The tour continues through the Pile Gate where King Joffrey faced the rage of the peasant uprising and proceeds towards the St. Lawrence’s fortress (Lovrijenac), which in the series represents the Red Keep. Our next stop is the Rector’s Palace located on the Dubrovnik’s main street, and by seeing it you will surely recognize the magical city of Qarth. After that we will visit the harbour, the marketplace, the Minceta Fortress and end our tour on the Revelin Square which overlooks the island of Lokrum (used for filming more Qarth scenes and the location of the Tomb of the Undying) and the Zarkovica hill (where Khal Drogo died). Optional longer tour includes climbing the city walls and the panoramic view of the locations where the Blackwater bay battle scenes were filmed.
