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.

Please note

Free entrance to Fort Lovrijenac if you have a Dubrovnik card or City Walls ticket.

Locations (15)

2. Gradac Park / Purple Wedding

The Mediterranean Gradac Park is located nearby the historic City of Dubrovnik, providing picturesque scenery such as pine-filled parklands and views of the Lovrijenac Fortress. The main entry point to the park is by climbing a set of steps that date back centuries, and once visitors reach the location, they’ll witness stunning glimpses of the old town below.

For Game of Thrones fans, Gradac Park is recognisable as the location where Margery 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 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 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

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. 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.

12. 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.

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 Ploce Gate. The steps of the Dominican Monastery will resonate with Game of Thrones fans as the place that depicted a scene in Season 2 Episode 5.

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 Joffery, and it is here that the Ghost Of Harrenhal Protest speech against the Lannisters takes place.

The protest speech at the Dominican Monastery captures the moment King Joffery is accused of being the incestuous result of an affair between brother and sister Cersei and Jamie Lannister.

14. Ploče Gate / Red Keep Gate

At the opposite end of St Dominic Street to that of the main street of Stradun is where Ploče Gate is located, connecting townsfolk with the Eastern region of Dubrovnik’s old town. Ploče Gate presents some familiarity for viewers of Game of Thrones for its representation of the entrance to the Red Keep.

Ploče Gate is remembered for appearing in the scenes caught on camera during season five episode ten Mother’s Mercy following Cersei Lannister’s walk of atonement. As we see during the show, Qyburn readily greets Cersei following her walk of shame as she enters the Red Keep.

Ploče Gate is the last of four locations used during the filming of Cersei’s walk of shame, which as we see in the final episode of series five, is where the guards are already waiting for her to arrive.

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. Minčeta Tower is used to represent the outer exterior of the House of the Undying which is depicted during Game of Thrones.

The city of Qarth in the TV series is the location for the House of the Undying, and one of the most prominent scenes we see the location caught on camera is during 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.

The real-life entrance to the Minčeta Tower is easier to find than in the series, although the best views to see are from above.
