Being a massive GOT fan, I traveled to Croatia last September to explore the locations where the show was filmed!

Croatia is where much of the Daenerys and Kings Landing storyline takes place. Dubrovnik's old city have been used extensively for Kings Landing since season two[1]. The locations in the Old City include the Pile and Ploče gate, the St. Dominika street, along the city walls includes the Bokar fortress and the Minčeta tower[2]

The idea of finding the spots from GOT was adopted from here

This ancient city brims with amazing architecture and is surrounded by the Mediterranean on the one side and amazing walls on the other .Visitors can take a walk along the city walls that surrounds the Old City. The walk takes a couple of hours and offers stunning views of the Dalmatian Coast and a bird's eye view of the city. Lovrijenac Fortress is one of the sights that can be seen from the wall, it is an impressive structure built on an outcropping rock. It is located just outside the Western wall of the Old Town and was featured in Game of Thrones[3].

Here are some GOT spots discovered during the visit

1.Outside the Walls of Dubrovnik old town

Cersei's walk of atonement ! There is CGI castle work in the distance. You'll notice it's quite different in real life. Another fact: Cersei had a body double in this scene [4]
