Bardenas Reales Park, Navarre

The Bardenas Reales Park has odd rock formations which make it a stunning, deserted location. This is clearly one of the most hauntingly amazing filming locations for this show. The location in Navarre appears for the first time in Season 6. This is where Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen, meets Khalassar. The rock formations of this location made it an ideal place for filming this season of the show. You will find these formations at this location if you happen to go a trip there.

Belvedere Atrium

This is a section of the non-fantasy-looking Belvedere Hotel that is situated in Dubrovnik. The hotel was destroyed during the Croatian Independence war in 1991. In the show, this is the place where the trial of Tyrion Lannister for King Joffery’s murder culminated in a fierce fight between Gregor, The Mountain, and Oberyn Martel. You will find this hotel at this location.

Vaes Dothrak

Vaes Dothrak is the only Dothraki City that gets some epic from Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland that looms in the background. These mountains made this location ideal for this show. The Vaes Dothrak scenes in Season one were filmed at a place called Sandy Brae. A trip to this location will give you a clear view of the Mourne Mountains.
