Around every corner of this city, there are iconic Game of Thrones filming locations to be found! The Pile Gate entrance to the Old Town has appeared numerous times throughout the TV series. Most notably, this is where King Joffrey is attacked by an angry mob.

Nearby is Pile Harbour. Flanked by two looming fortresses, this is often shown as the entrance point to King’s Landing. This is where we see Myrcella sail away to Dorne, and where Cersei waits expectingly as Jaime brings her daughter back.

Of course, Dubrovnik’s City Walls also play a large part in Game of Thrones. We often see characters plotting schemes as they walk along these medieval fortifications. They even receive damage during the dramatic Battle of the Blackwater. Thankfully, that was just TV magic, as the walls are a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As part of the Game of Thrones Walk in Dubrovnik tour, you’ll also visit the Fort of St. Lawrence. This fortress and theatre overlooks the sea and is instantly recognisable as the Red Keep in King’s Landing. Many important scenes take place here, such as King Joffrey’s Nameday Tournament. This is also where Cersei plots to remove the Tyrells from King’s Landing.

And, when looking for iconic filming locations, you can’t forget the Jesuit Staircase.

These stone steps are instantly recognisable as the route up to the Great Sept of Baelor. Many scenes took place here, most notably Cersei’s Walk of Penance. This was the lowest point in her character’s arc, but as we all know, she got her revenge in the end.

There are plenty more famous filming sites throughout the whole of Dubrovnik’s Old Town. And your guide will be sure to show you them all. With so much to see, the Game of Thrones Walk in Dubrovnik tour is not to be missed!

Locations (7)

2. 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.

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. 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.

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. 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.
