You will first meet your guide under a Lannister sigil at the Pile Gate. This entrance to the city has appeared in numerous episodes of Game of Thrones. Most notably, this is where the Lannisters are confronted by an angry mob.

From here you will climb the stairs up to Fort Lovrjenac, which features throughout the TV series as the Red Keep. While taking in the stunning views of Dubrovnik, you can also recreate some of your favourite scenes. Like when Tyrion slaps Joffrey, or when the Hound saves Sansa.

Moving past the docks where Myrcella sails off for her new life in Dorne, you will walk through the Gates of King’s Landing. Then it’s down through the streets of the Old City until you reach the Ethnographic Museum. A popular tourist attraction for the whole family, this building serves a more underground purpose in King’s Landing. This is the site of Littlefinger’s brothel, where many of your favourite characters have brought their business.

From here you can also catch a glimpse of the Bokar Fortress. While it never featured as a part of King’s Landing, it should still be recognisable to fans. The historic building played the role of the House of Undying in Qarth. Another Qarth location that you can see on this tour is the mansion of the Spice King. The building that features in the TV series is actually Dubrovnik’s Rector’s Palace.

Starting at the Jesuit Staircase, you can follow her path along Dominican Street.

Finally, your tour will finish at Revelin Fortress. Here you’ll be treated to spectacular views of Lokrum Island, which features as Qarth. You’ll also be able to see the arena where Oberyn Sand met his demise at the hands of the Mountain.

Tour details

Locations (9)

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

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.

7. 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.

8. 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.
