EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES PHOTOS - Dubrovnik says goodbye to Game of Thrones for the final time

Written by  Feb 11, 2018

The Dubrovnik adventure in Game of Thrones ended this week, the last cameras were packed up, the catering trucks rolled out of town and the actors posted Instagram photos sitting on departing planes. The eighth and final season of the most popular TV series ever broadcast left Dubrovnik for the last time, unless the rumours of a trilogy of films come true.

There can be no doubt that the series has been mutually beneficial. HBO gained a unique location that featured as the crown jewel in the series, and Dubrovnik has earned not only a financial benefit but also priceless marketing. Even though the final series has been “wrapped” in Dubrovnik the results won’t hit the smalls screens until 2019, meaning that the Game of Thrones effect will last for a good few years yet. The life of GOT in Dubrovnik is difficult to predict, could it roll on until the next big hit arrives or will it have a more lasting, if less concentrated, effect for the next decade.

So as we wave goodbye for the final filming, which was short and sweet over only three days, here are a few, yet to be released photos, of some of the “behind the scenes” action.

Goodbye Game of Thrones…it has been a blast!
