Video: Stunning Croatia’s contribution to Game of Thrones

SHARE

For Game of Thrones fans, Dubrovnik is King’s Landing, capital of Westeros, and its constant presence since series two has only heightened the appeal of a city that already creaks under the weight of tourist numbers. There are recognisable locations galore in the heart of the crowded Old City, including St Dominika Street, used for numerous market scenes, Stradun, along which Cersei Lannister takes her walk of penance, Minceta Tower, the highest point in Dubrovnik, and Fort St. Lawrence.

Gradac Park, on the outskirts of the historic centre, is the setting for the comically villainous Joffrey Baratheon’s wedding feast and subsequent comeuppance, while the atrium of the abandoned Hotel Belvedere is where Oberyn Martell suffers a grisly ending in season four. Farther afield is Trsteno Arboretum, which dates back to the 15th century – it stars as the bucolic Red Keep palace gardens.

Other key Croatian sites include Diocletian’s Palace in Split, which becomes the former slave city of Meereen, Trogir, which appears as Qarth, “greatest city that ever was or will be”, and Kastel Gomilica, otherwise known as Braavos.
