Full description

Now you can see them up close, on the Game of Thrones Dubrovnik Walking Tour.

This is the perfect opportunity to experience the bustling atmosphere of King’s Landing and recreate some of your favourite scenes. Lead by a licenced tour guide, you will visit all of the most iconic filming locations throughout the historic city.

Jesuit Staircase / Walk of Shame stairs
Jesuit Staircase / Walk of Shame stairs

You’ll get to visit Fort Lovrjenac, the real-life stronghold that features in Game of Thrones as the Red Keep. Many important scenes have taken place here, such as King Joffrey’s Nameday Tournament. This is also where Tyrion slaps Joffrey, and where the Hound saves Sansa from the city riots.

Another location used for scenes in the Red Keep is Revelin Fortress. Looking out from this fortress you will be treated to dazzling vistas of the city’s harbours and the Adriatic Sea. You’ll also get a great view of Lokrum Island. This site featured as the magical city of Qarth.

But not all of Qarth is situated outside of the Dubrovnik City Walls. The Game of Thrones Dubrovnik Walking Tour will be sure to bring you to the Rector’s Palace within the city. This magnificent building doubled up as the mansion of the Spice King of Qarth.

Of course, one of the most famous Game of Thrones scenes takes place around Dubrovnik’s city centre.

At her lowest point and as punishment for her crimes, the High Sparrow forces Cersei to take a Walk of Shame through the city’s streets. You’ll get the opportunity to trace the path of her slow march. It starts at the Jesuit Staircase, the iconic stone steps leading up to the Great Sept of Baelor. From there you can travel along St Dominic Street and the Stradun, which also appeared in the scene.

Fort Bokar and Blackwater Bay

Even Dubrovnik’s City Walls themselves have appeared on screen numerous times. Most notably during the Battle of the Blackwater, as the King’s Guard defended the city. Looking out from the walls you’ll see Blackwater Bay and the King’s Landing docks. Just outside of the walls is also the beach from which Myrcella leaves for Dorne, and where Cersei waits for her to arrive back.

Locations (15)

2. Gradac Park / Purple Wedding

The Mediterranean Gradac Park is located near the historic City of Dubrovnik, providing picturesque scenery such as pine-filled parklands and stunning views of the Lovrijenac Fortress and the old town. You reach the main entry point to the park by climbing a set of steps that date back centuries.

This is the location where Margaery Tyrell is set to be wed to King Joffrey, widely known as the Purple Wedding. The outdoor Dubrovnik location was transformed entirely to host everything you’d imagine for a Royal wedding reception. That includes the huge wedding feast, elegant decorations, and as we see during season four, entertainment for the guests in the most unexpected forms. Although the main celebrations for the wedding reception were held in Dubrovnik, the opening ceremony was caught on camera in a semi-permanent set in Belfast.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. Dubrovnik City Walls / King’s Landing City Walls

The Dubrovnik City Walls are connected to Fort Bokar, providing defences from hostile attacks for the old town in as recent years as the 1990s. These walls were one of several locations used to represent Game of Thrones’ King’s Landing City Walls.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. Dominican Monastery / Protest speech against the Lannisters

The Dominican Monastery was formed in the 12th century, with the church standing today being constructed during the 14th century. The Monastery is located in Eastern Dubrovnik, merging with the city walls nearby the Ploče Gate.

During the season 2 episode, both Bronn and Tyrion Lannister are seen walking along the streets of King’s Landing alongside the Monastery where their attention is drawn to the fiery shouting against King Joffrey, and it is here that the Ghost of Harrenhal Protest speech against the Lannisters takes place.

14. Ploče Gate / Red Keep Gate

Ploče Gate connects townsfolk with the Eastern region of Dubrovnik’s old town and served as the entrance to the Red Keep in Game of Thrones. The last scene of Cersei Lannister’s walk of atonement was filmed here, when Cersei returns to the Red Keep in the final episode of season 5.

15. Minčeta Tower / House of the Undying

Dubrovnik’s Minčeta Tower stands at the most robust part of the city walls, and views from the tower offer breathtaking views onto the old town below. The original 13th-century tower was replaced in the 14th century where the current structure now stands. The entrance to the Minčeta Tower is easier to find than in the series, although the best views are from above.

This location served as The House of the Undying in the city of Qarth in season two. After her dragons are stolen, Daenerys Targaryen desperately searches for the entrance to the House of the Undying in an attempt to rescue her beloved dragons from her enemies.
