We are so glad that we visited the King’s Landing before it turned into ashes by Dany’s Dragon.



The old town of the city has depicted the scene of King’s Landing in “Game of Thrones”. It has unique and well-preserved cobblestone streets with wonderful architecture and brick-covered buildings. We literally felt that we were in the scenes of GOT.

Here are the 14 famous Game of Thrones locations in Dubrovnik:


1. Pile Gate:


So, we entered the city from the main Old Town Gate called Pile Gate. The gate was featured several times in Seasons 2 and 3 of Game of Thrones.



It’s the place where the famous scene of King Joffrey took place when he returned to King's Landing and was attacked by mobs. It’s a main entrance to the Old Town.

2. Lovrijenac Fort:


The Lovrijenac Fort also appears in several episodes of Game of Thrones. Like a curious fan, we were always wondering where the iconic dialog between Cersei and Littlefinger had taken place when they confronted each other. The scene had been shot in the Lovrijenac Fort.


The Fort is in the coastal area and the entrance of the fort is close to the entrance of the old city town.

3. Gradac park:


Do you know where the Purple Wedding took place and Joffrey was poisoned? You can see the view from the top of Lovrijenac Fort over the parking lot and Gradac Park. Though, the view is very different from the real scene in the series.



4. West Pier, Dubrovnik:


The famous West Pier has been filmed in various scenes like in the battle of Blackwater Bay and when Sansa and Shae were watching the ships and Little Finger offered her help.

6. Spanish stairs - Walk of Shame:


The famous Spanish stairs where Cersei had the Walk of Shame is also located inside the old town. The stairs are right next to Cathedral Saint Ignatius. The stairs are always full of tourists, you hardly get an opportunity to get the perfect picture.



But during our visit on Christmas days, the surrounding street shops were closed and the stairs were totally empty. So we got an opportunity to do “My Walk of Shame”.

On the main street of the old town, you can find Rector’s Palace where indoor scenes were shot between Danaerys and thirteen rulers of Qarth where she requested to carry her army.
