Game of Thrones Cosplay Tour of Dubrovnik

Rule over the Seven Kingdoms on the Game of Thrones Cosplay Tour of Dubrovnik. See the sights of the capital city of Westeros.

As an ancient walled city, Dubrovnik has always held an air of importance. Overlooking the Adriatic and Meditteranean seas, it has a history as a major base for maritime trade. And, while it was once a capital in its own right, its most recent claim to fame is representing another on Game of Thrones. Dubrovnik’s bustling streets and ancient architecture feature prominently as King’s Landing. It has been the backdrop of many royal events, from weddings to executions.

And now you can explore this fantasy city like the many kings and queens before you!

The Game of Thrones Cosplay Tour of Dubrovnik lets you rule Westeros for a day, while also showing you the most famous filming locations around Dubrovnik. You’ll see where your favourite characters have played out their most important moments. And you’ll even be able to reenact the most famous scenes too, with the aid of some Game of Thrones costumes.

Your day begins with a walk along Blackwater Bay. This is the scene of one of the TV series greatest battles. It is also where many characters have arrived to or departed from King’s Landing by boat.

From here you will climb the steps that bring you to Fort Lovrijenac, the filming location of the Red Keep. This is where the rulers of King’s Landing reside, surveying the city from on high. And it is the perfect perch to do this from. Standing at the top, you are treated to breathtaking views of the city below, as well as the sea and Lokrum Island.

Venturing into the city you will be sure to recognise the streetscapes and buildings from throughout the TV series. One of the most prominent is the Jesuit Staircase. These stone steps feature as those leading to the Great Sept of Baelor. Of course, no one can forget the scene where Cersei Lannister was forced to descend the steps on her Walk of Shame.

After exploring the city, the Game of Thrones Cosplay Tour of Dubrovnik brings you to Lokrum Island.

This small landmass is a natural paradise, covered in vegetation and trees, and teeming with wildlife. It is also the filming location of Qarth, the exotic city that Daenerys visits on her travels. This is also where you will get the chance to live out your wildest Westerosi dreams! During your visit to the island, you will be provided with Game of Thrones character costumes and get your picture taken on the Iron Throne. The question is, which character will you choose to reign over the Seven Kingdoms?

Locations (12)

2. Pile Bay / Blackwater Bay

Located in the Western region of Dubrovnik is Pile Bay. Offering stunning views of Lovrijenac and Bokar Fort, this area was used as a transport hub for seafarers arriving in the city. Pile Bay depicted the location of Blackwater Bay in the Game of Thrones TV series.

One of the most iconic scenes where we see Pile Bay being used  is during the dramatic Battle for Blackwater Bay.  Although Pile Bay was one of the locations where Lord Baelish discussed plans for Sansa to escape, this same spot was used once again to shoot the scene of Robert Baratheon’s bastards being murdered.

Every angle of the real-life Pile Bay location offers spectacular views of the city, so even for non-Game of Thrones fans, this is an unmissable location to see some of the best views Dubrovnik has to offer.

3. Dubrovnik West Pier / King's Landing Harbour

Dubrovnik’s West Pier is nothing less than stunning, offering spectacular views from the real-life setting as well as providing eye-pleasing views when appearing on the big screen. For Game of Thrones enthusiasts, Dubrovnik West Pier represents the location which captures King’s Landing Harbour.

For viewers, Dubrovnik West Pier is recognised as being the area which captured the departure of Myrcella Baratheon to Dorne. Dubrovnik West Pier was further seen in Game of Thrones further along the bridge when Shae observed Sansa chatting to Blackfinger to offer her a way out of the troubles she’s encountering. This scene appeared during Season 3 episode one Valar Dohaeris.

A deleted scene which would have appeared in Season 3 also captured a moment when Tywin Lannister and Pycelle are sat on the edge of the dock fishing side by side.

4. Fort Lovrijenac / Red Keep

Fort Lovrijenac, (also called the Fort of St. Lawrence in English) is nestled in the area just West of Dubrovnik old town. The fort is often referred to as ”Dubrovnik’s Gibraltar” due to its location residing at the top of a cliff that’s 27 metres in height. The fort spans three levels, and It’s unique triangular shape exterior immediately stands out to tourists.

The incredibly famous castle represents the iconic Red Keep viewers will be familiar with, seen on several occasions during Game of Thrones. Although the King’s Landing location is seen multiple times across the series, one such episode that’ll resonate with fans is witnessing the tournament held on King Joffrey’s name day. Another memorable event where we see the Red Keep is in season 3 following the battle of Blackwater when Podrick, Bronn and Tyrion are spotted on the walls of the Red Keep.

Tourists can experience this iconic location where Cercei Lannister had multiple confrontations first-hand, or overlooking the fort from above at the restaurant Nautika.

5. Pile Gate / King’s Landing Entrance

Pile Gate is used as the main entry point to the old town of Dubrovnik, the complex has several doors, and Fort Bokar provided defences centuries ago. In the present day, the gates remain open to the general public. For Game of Thrones followers, Pile Gate is more recognisable as the spot which represented the entrance to King’s Landing.

Viewers will recall seeing Pile Gate as the King’s Landing Entrance during Season 3 Episode 10, which was when Jamie Lannister arrives at King’s Landing to visit his sister Cersei Lannister. Upon entering Pile Gate, the area opens up to reveal the place where the King’s landing riot was filmed, when King Joffrey gets fruit thrown at him by one of the angry crowd members during Season 2 Episode 6.

Following the path behind Pile Gate will lead entrants into Dubrovnik’s old town.

6. Fort Bokar / King's Landing City Walls

The walls of Fort Bokar surround the entire old town of Dubrovnik, and the fortress has been around since the 14th century. The reinforced stone walls are referred to as one of the middle ages most fortified constructions, having never been breached. Fort Bokar is recognisable for representing King’s Landing City Walls from Game of Thrones.

Fort Bokar can be seen when Tyrion and Lord Varys have a discussion surrounding the best approach to protect King’s landing as they gaze into the distant sea during season 2. In this same location during season seven, Cersei Lannister explains that she is planning to join forces with Euron Grayjoy to her brother Jamie.

Even Game of Thrones fans often walk by the walls of Fort Bokar, without realising the importance of them for their representation as the King’s Landing City Walls.

7. Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum / Littlefinger’s Brothel

Dating back to the 16th century is the Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum, and is located in an old granary. Dubrovnik kept the reserves of grain in silos which were created out of a unique stone known as Rupe. For Game of Thrones followers, the Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum is known to represent Littlefinger’s Brothel in King’s landing.

Although Littlefinger has a range of brothel’s to his name, his King’s Landing brothel is first seen in Season one when Catelyn Stark is escorted after being captured by the City Watch. Following his knighting, Bronn celebrates at Littlefinger’s Brothel by purchasing the services of the prostitute Mirelle in season three.

Later on, in season five we discover the High Septon has secretly been a patron of Littlefinger’s Brothel, paying higher-priced prostitutes for their services such as them dressing up as one of the Seven.

8. Jesuit Staircase / Walk of Shame Stairs

The iconic Jesuit Staircase descends from Gundulić Square, and at the top of the steps is where Dubrovnik’s picturesque Jesuit church of St. Ignatius is located. Game of Thrones enthusiasts will recognise the Jesuit staircase as the place where the memorable Walk of Shame scene begins.

Fans will recall the Walk of Shame stairs location when it appeared during GOT season five. This is the scene where the High Sparrow makes his speech before Cersei Lannister is stripped naked and is forced to repent her sins by taking a walk of shame down the staircase. The very first scene which saw Cersei standing at the top of the stairs was caught on camera at the Jesuit Staircase.

There are a variety of coffee bars and restaurants in this area, and the scene required the use of the location for the entire day, making this one of the most expensive scenes for HBO.

9. Rector's Palace / Spice King's Mansion

Rector’s Palace is located in Dubrovnik’s old town and was constructed in the 15th century. The palace was used as a seat of government in the days when Dubrovnik was an independent republic. Rector’s Palace has significance for Game of Thrones fans as being the filming location to represent Spice King’s Mansion.

We see Rector’s Palace being used as Spice King’s Mansion during episode six of GOT season 2 the Old God’s and the New. The palace is used to capture the scene where Daenerys Targaryen pays a visit to the Spice King’s Mansion in the city of Qarth, to request a fleet of ships to transport her army over the North Sea, her request is then denied.

Today, Rector’s Palace remains one of Dubrovnik’s most famous monuments and is now used as a museum.

10. St Dominic Street / Walk of Shame

St Dominic Street is often referred to as one of Dubrovnik’s most picturesque streets and connects Ploče gate and Stradun, and along the street is Dominic Monastery. Although St Dominic Street is perhaps not the most famous street in Dubrovnik, it is undoubtedly the most significant following the filming of the Walk of Shame scene in Game of Thrones.

After Cersei Lannister descends the staircase to begin her walk of atonement, St Dominic Street is the main stretch that she walks along as she is heckled passing by the crowds of King’s Landing.  Also, St Dominic Street also represented the location in GOT season 2 where Bronn and Tyrion witnessed a protest speech.

St Dominic Street is further used to capture the scene of the murders of Robert Baratheon’s bastard sons by the Gold Cloaks.
