Dubrovnik is a beautiful 13th-century city on the southern Dalmatian coast of Croatia. Due to its iconic city walls, beautiful architecture, and stunning crystal-clear waters, Croatians call it the Pearl of the Adriatic Sea. As a result, the Old Town of Dubrovnik is an officially recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s no wonder then why David Benioff and D. B. Weiss from HBO chose Dubrovnik as the setting for King’s Landing.
Game of Thrones is one of the most popular television series distributed by HBO and if you are a real fan of it, Dubrovnik is the right place for you. With the large outer walls, narrow streets of the Old town and fortifications built by human hands over time, Dubrovnik in Croatia was the perfect place for King’s Landing. Dubrovnik has been a prominent Game of Thrones filming location since Season 2 and the Croatian city is a must-visit for any Game of Thrones fan. Exploring the many Game of Thrones filming locations is one of the best things to do in Dubrovnik.
