If your decision to visit Dubrovnik was even partially inspired by the Game of Thrones, we highly recommend visiting the locations used for scenes.
The walk to the Fort Lovrijenac (the Red Keep, home of the Kings of the Seven Kingdoms) includes climbing many steep stairs, but the reward will be the view from its top which reveals the Blackwater Bay itself.
It takes only a short boat trip from Dubrovnik’s Old Town port “across the Narrow Sea” to reach the island of Lokrum and its deserted Benedictine monastery with botanical garden where you may come across peacocks in their daily stroll. The monastery was used for scenes that take place in Qarth.
Recently, the abandoned hotel Belvedere was also used as a filming location.
Perhaps less known fact is that some buildings in Dubrovnik have also been used as locations in Qarth, across the narrow sea, such as Minceta Fort’s entrance (the House of Undying, season two finale). Should your schedule allow it, visit Trsteno, a nearby village where a spectacular arboretum is located, which was the site of King’s Landing palace gardens in the third season and the iconic scenes that involve the house Tyrell.
You also may recognize some scenes while strolling through the street of Sv. Dominika (St. Dominic).
The filming for season four continues until late September, when it will move to Split, home to the Roman remains of Diocletian’s Palace.
