VIDEO – Dubrovnik featured in Knightfall trailer

By  Feb 06, 2017

The American History Channel filmed their serial Knightfall in July last year and now the trailer is out. It's easy to recognize the Bay of Pile, directly outside of the historic City Walls, where the most of the explosions and sword fights have been filmed. 

The plot follows the Templars and their quest for the Holy Grail. Dubrovnik is a fitting location for the serial as according to legend King Richard the Lionheart was left shipwrecked in 1192 on his way back from the crusades and was saved by swimming to the island of Lokrum in front of the city. He vowed to build a cathedral on the place where his foot touched land; however the Republic of Dubrovnik convinced him that the city was a much more suitable location for such a worthy gesture. The legend suggests that the English King then gave gold to build the first cathedral in Dubrovnik, at the time the most expensive cathedral in Europe.

According to the trailer, Dubrovnik will have an important role in the serial. We are looking forward to it.
