We just returned from an epic week in Dubrovnik, Croatia. I will post about the final chapter of our Croatia- Slovenia adventure tomorrow. If you read my post on Split you will know what a huge GOT nerd I am….so please indulge me this little post. Yes- I did intentionally visit as many Game of Thrones filming locations in Dubrovnik as I could (and dragged my husband and poor kids with me). Here are some of the highlights.
These are the steps of the Great Sept of Baelor in King’s Landing. They are instantly recognizable as Cerci’s Walk of Shame scene. They are also used in other scenes such as Tywin Lannister’s funeral and the scene when King Tommen came to ask The High Sparrow to spare Margaery.
I got to keep my clothes on! However, Wyatt thoroughly enjoyed screaming, “Shame! Shame! Shame!” at me as I walked down the stairs, wincing with embarrassment.
St. Dominic Street
This place is used in many of the market scenes, as well as the scene where there is a protest speech against the powers that be.
This is the gate Cersei Lannister passes over at the end of her Walk of Shame to enter the Red Keep. Wasn’t able to find the actual GOT scenes but here are pics of the real deal.
Walls of Dubrovnik.
Too. Many. Scenes to count filmed from the Walls of Dubrobnik.
This location hosted the scene where Cersei Lannister watched her daughter’s departure as well as the scene where Sansa Stark and Shae converse.
There’s a cool little corner with some unique doors in the bay. This is where the gold cloaks were ordered to murder all of King Baratheon’s illegitimate children.
Many, many GOT scene locations here as well. Bronn and Tyrion have many conversations on top of this fort.
As do Lord Varys and Tryion.
And Cercei features quite a bit in this location.
You also get some stunning views of Dubrovnik Old Town AKA King’s Landing from the fort.
Lokrum Island is the city of Quarth in Game of Thrones. Lots and lots of Dany scenes filmed here.
The Entrance to the Old City
Jamie’s return to King’s Landing as well as multiple city scenes.
And the highlight of the trip. Here was the view from the balcony of our Airbnb.
