Let’s conquer the King's Landing before it turns into ashes.
Being a crazy fan of Game of Thrones, we want to explore each and every part of the World where Game of Thrones has been shot to see how amazing it looks with our eye. We started our Game of Thrones tour from King’s Landing, Dubrovnik.
Being honest, it took us some time to find out the exact spots where the real scenes of the series took place.In our blog, we will provide a guideline for the GOT fans so they can quickly find the spots.
Guided Map for Game of Throne fans:
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”. The old town has unique and well-preserved cobblestone streets with wonderful architecture and bricks covered buildings. We literally felt that we were in the scenes of GOT.
1. Pile Gate:
So, we entered the city from the main Old town Gate called Pile gate. The gate had featured several times in Season 2 and 3 of Game of thrones.
It’s the place where famous scene of the King Joffrey had been took place when he returned to Kings' landing and being attacked by mobs. It’s a main entrance to the Old town.
2. Lovrijenac Fort:
The Lovrijenac Fort also appears in several episode of GOT. Like a curious fan, we were always wondering where the iconic dialog between Cersei and Littlefinger had taken place where they confronted each other. The scene had been shot in the Lovrijenac Fort.
The Fort is on the coastal area and the entrance of the fort is a little bit before 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 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 have been filmed in various scenes like in battle of Blackwater Bay and when Sansa and Shae were watching the ships and Little finger offers her help.
The scene was shot in season 2 Episode 1. The Pier is located between Lovrijenac Fort and Old town. Don’t forget to take the Iconic pictures.

The old town is surrounded by city wall and you need to climb up the stairs to experience the view where Danaerys was looking for stolen Dragon with Ser Jorah in season 2.
The famous tower is called Minceta Tower. The ticket costs € 20 including entrance to city wall and Lovrijenac Fort.
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 with tourist, you hardly get an opportunity to get the perfect picture.
But during our visit in 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”.
7. Rector’s Palace:
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.
8. Pile Harbour between Bokar Fortress and Fort Lovrijenac:
The Pile Harbour appears in season 6, when Cersei was waiting for Princess Myrecell's Return.
