Full description

Now you have the opportunity to see them all for yourself!

The Game of Thrones Full-Day Private Tour of Dubrovnik is the perfect way to explore the city’s Game of Thrones legacy. Taking exclusive transport, you can sit back and relax while your guide takes you to all of the most recognisable filming locations.

One of which is Fort Lovrijenac. This historic military building plays a key role throughout the TV series, featuring as the Red Keep. The stage for many memorable scenes, this is where the monarch of King’s Landing resides. From here you can gaze out over all of Dubrovnik, as well as what lies beyond its walls.

Exploring the Old Town, you will come across many more iconic sites. One of which is the harbour that featured as Blackwater Bay. This was the scene of one of Game of Thrones greatest and most explosive battles. There’s also the Jesuit Staircase, which doubled as the steps leading to the Great Sept of Baelor. The most notable scene to take place here was Cersei Lannister’s Walk of Shame.

The Game of Thrones Full-Day Private Tour of Dubrovnik also takes you beyond the city limits.

Just a short drive away you will find the beautiful Trsteno Arboretum, which doubled as the King’s Landing gardens. Throughout the TV series, this has been the setting for many important discussions between the main characters. Many schemes were plotted out as they paced between the flower beds.

You will also take the trip to Hotel Belvedere. Sitting on a cliff edge overlooking the Adriatic Sea, this resting place has been shut down for many years. However, the hotel’s circular courtyard was the perfect stage for one of Game of Thrones’ most memorable duels. This is where the Mountain and Oberyn Sand fought it out, with only one of them surviving.

Lastly, you will travel by ferry across to the small Lokrum Island. Covered in natural vegetation and wildlife, this island was transformed into the mysterious city of Qarth. This is also the home of the Iron Throne, which you’ll even get a chance to sit on!

Locations (14)

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. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

 

11. Trsteno Arboretum / King's Landing Gardens

The breathtaking Trsteno Arboretum is located North West of Dubrovnik. This is the filming location of the picturesque King’s Landing Gardens in season 3 and 4 of the Game of Thrones TV series.

King’s Landing Gardens is often referred to as Tyrell (High) Garden following the arrival of the family from the Reach. This location is featured when Sansa pays a visit to Lady Olenna Tyrell to discuss Margaery’s marriage to King Joffrey, and whether the wedding is such a good idea. Trsteno is used again when Oberon advises Cersei that he’ll send a present to Myrcella.

12. Mount Srđ / The Kingsroad

Dubrovnik’s Mount Srđ is located an impressive 415 meters above sea level, offering breathtaking views of the Dubrovnik coastline, the Elaphiti Islands as well as Lokrum. For Game of Thrones fans, the road leading up to Mount Srđ depicts The Kingsroad.

Although parts of the Kingsroad were filmed elsewhere, the filming location nearby Mount Srđ captured the moment when Bronn and Tyrion are awaiting the arrival of Oberyn into King’s landing.

13. Hotel Belvedere / The Mountain vs. the Red Viper

Located around two miles from old town Dubrovnik is the abandoned site of Hotel Belvedere. The once five-star hotel was originally a small amphitheatre situated close by the sea. The pathway that leads to Hotel Belvedere offers some breathtaking views. Unfortunately, entry into the hotel is no longer possible due to safety reasons.

We see the arena used during season four – The Mountain and the Viper – following the prosecution of Tyrion Lannister for the murder of King Joffrey. A trial by combat is set up to determine Tyrion’s fate which plots Oberyn Martell (The Red Viper) against Gregor Clegane (The Mountain).
