Game of Thrones locations I visited in Dubrovnik

I’ve just returned from a very interesting break in Croatia where I was able to visit some of the key Game of Thrones sites in Dubrovnik and Split. Below is a film of the locations used by the series producers with my guide holding up a picture of what it looked like once the set designers had got to work – and the CGI boffins. Really clever use of medieval castles and streets with fantastical imagery superimposed.

FYI – Dubrovnik was ruled by the Byzantines then the Venetians after the crusades before centuries as a vassal city state of the Ottoman empire. It is now a beautiful walled city in the European republic of Croatia.
