The ultimate Game of Thrones filming locations guide by The Telegraph

Written by  Jun 14, 2016

The Telegraph has published the ultimate Game of Thrones filming locations guide and of course Croatia and Dubrovnik are the big part of it, among the other countries such as Nothern Ireland, Iceland, Spain...

- For Game of Thrones fans, Dubrovnik is King’s Landing, capital of Westeros, and its constant presence since series two has only heightened the appeal of a city that already creaks under the weight of tourist numbers – writes the author of the article about Dubrovnik, adding that the scenes were filmed all over the Old City, such as Minceta Tower, St. Lawrence Fort and many others.

- Gradac Park, on the outskirts of the historic centre, is the setting for the comically villainous Joffrey Baratheon’s wedding feast and subsequent comeuppance, while the atrium of the abandoned Hotel Belvedere is where Oberyn Martell suffers a grisly ending in season four. Farther afield is Trsteno Arboretum, which dates back to the 15th century – it stars as the bucolic Red Keep palace gardens – continues the author.

Other Croatian cities are mentioned too: Split which appears as the former slave city of Meereen, Trogir which appears as Qarth and Kastel Gomilica in the role of Braavos.
