Dubrovnik: What you really want to see.

I know I’m going on and on about the tourist things in Dubrovnik, but what you really want to see is where Game of Thrones was filmed. Well, seeing as I’m a big nerd and hate to disappoint here are the filming locations we visited!

I found some cool websites like THIS one to help find locations.

Myrcella departs for Dorn.

Season 2. Episode 6.

Pile Harbour

Riot of King’s Landing (where Joffrey gets a mud pie in the face)

Season 2. Episode 6.

Pile Gate.

We walked through the Pile Gate almost every day as it’s one of the main entrances into Dubrovnik’s old town. I mostly took pictures of all the cats that hang out here and neglected to get a shot of the whole. They really didn’t change it much for the show though, just had to wrangle some cats I imagine.

Tyrion and Varys plot together.

Season 2. Episode 8.

Dubrovnik city walls.

We weren’t allowed to go to the exact spot, but Tyrion and Varys have their conversation where that cannon is. So I was basically hanging out with Tyrion and Varys.

Purple Wedding.

Season 4. Episode 2.

Gradac Park.

You’ll have to use your imagination a bit, because the set is dressed up quite a bit but I promise this is the same place!

I’m sure there are tonnes more spots that we walked through, but these are definitely the best ones. You can see a lot of the locations in one picture here:

Bonus: in the little movie theatre in the old city they have photos and information about various movies and shows that have been filmed in Dubrovnik. Including the classic blockbuster Captain America!
