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.

Full description

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’s old town is Pile Bay. Offering stunning views of Fort Lovrijenac and Fort Bokar, this area was used as a transport hub for seafarers arriving in the city. Pile Bay is the filming location of Blackwater Bay in the Game of Thrones TV series.

One of the most iconic scenes is the dramatic Battle of Blackwater Bay. This is also the locations where Lord Baelish discussed plans for Sansa to escape, and the same spot was used again to shoot the scene of Robert Baratheon’s bastards being murdered.

3. Dubrovnik West Pier / King's Landing Harbour

Dubrovnik’s West Pier is nothing less than stunning, offering spectacular views in person as well as on the TV screen. This location was used to capture King’s Landing Harbour in Game of Thrones, including the departure of Myrcella Baratheon to Dorne. It is further seen when Shae observed Sansa talking to Littlefinger, who offers her a way out of her desperate situation in Season 3.

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’s old town. The fort is often referred to as ”Dubrovnik’s Gibraltar” due to its location residing at the top of a 27 metres high cliff. The fort spans three levels, and it’s unique triangular shape exterior immediately stands out.

The incredibly famous fort is seen as the iconic Red Keep on several occasions during Game of Thrones. One such episode is the tournament held on King Joffrey’s name day. Another memorable event is when Podrick, Bronn and Tyrion are spotted on the walls of the Red Keep following the Battle of Blackwater.

5. Pile Gate / King’s Landing Entrance

Pile Gate is the main entry point to the old town of Dubrovnik, contributing to the defence of the city for centuries and protected by Fort Bokar. In the present day, the gates remain open to the public.

Pile Gate is seen as the King’s Landing Entrance during Season 3, when Jamie Lannister arrives at King’s Landing to visit his sister Cersei. 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 the angry crowd during Season 2.

6. Fort Bokar / King's Landing City Walls

Fort Bokar is part of the Dubrovnik city walls, and 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. This is one of the filming locations of the King’s Landing City Walls in 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 to her brother Jamie that she is planning to join forces with Euron Grayjoy.

7. Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum / Littlefinger’s Brothel

Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum dates back to the 16th century 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. This is the filming location of Littlefinger’s Brothel in King’s Landing.

In season five we discover that 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 ascends from Gundulić Square, and leads to Dubrovnik’s picturesque Jesuit church of St. Ignatius. This is the place where the memorable Walk of Shame begins, including the scene where the High Sparrow makes his speech before Cersei Lannister is stripped naked and is forced to repent her sins by walking down the staircase.

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

Rector’s Palace has significance for Game of Thrones fans as the filming location of the Spice King’s Mansion. 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 Sea.

10. St Dominic Street / Walk of Shame

St Dominic Street is one of Dubrovnik’s most picturesque streets, connecting the Dominic Monastery with Ploče gate and Stradun.

After Cersei Lannister descends the staircase to begin her walk of atonement, St Dominic Street is used to capture the main stretch where she is heckled by the crowds of King’s Landing. St Dominic Street was also featured in the scene where Bronn and Tyrion witnessed a protest speech in season 2. This location was further used to capture the scene of the murders of Robert Baratheon’s bastard sons by the Gold Cloaks.
