As the show has been growing more and more popular through the years, people often wonder if some of the Game of Thrones filming locations are even on this planet.
So there wouldn’t be any doubts in the future, we gathered 10 of the most popular and well known Game of Thrones filming locations!
Old Town, Dubrovnik, Croatia (King’s Landing)
Not only has the show benefited from its popularity. Also these filming locations have. Dubrovnik being recognized as King’s Landing has witnessed a massive growth in tourism which hasn’t only affected the city itself, but the whole country of Croatia.
Visitors who come to Dubrovnik can’t help but imagine and recreate Cersei’s famous walk of shame or the people’s rebellion against the hated King Joffrey.
Alcázar of Seville, Spain (Dorne’s Sunspear)
This is probably one of the most beautiful locations from the whole show.
A fun fact about it is that despite being Seville’s biggest tourist attraction, the crew still got permission to shut half of it down and film some of the scenes which were happening in Dorne.
Ballintoy Harbor, Northern Ireland (Iron Islands)
Ballintoy is familiar to us because of the scenes filmed between Theon and his sister Yara in the beginning. Later on we are used to seeing the more rocky part of the Northern Irish coastline.
Castillo de Zafra, Spain (Tower of Joy)
When you hear about the song of ice and fire you can’t help but think of the Tower of Joy. It has a very important meaning to every Game of Thrones fan because it keeps some of the secrets regarding the life of Lyanna Stark and our favorite “bastard” – Jon Snow.
Grjótagjá, Iceland (Jon Snow’s Love Cave)
As the Tower of Joy mentioned before, this volcanic cave is the place where one of people’s favorite scenes is filmed. The hot temperature inside where the water can top 100 degrees Fahrenheit made it even easier for Jon to break his vows and make love to Ygritte.
Vatnajökull, Iceland (Beyond the Wall)
Europe’s largest glacier known as Vatnajökull is definitely the place you should go if you are ready to chase the White Walkers.
Trsteno, Croatia (King’s Landing Palace Gardens)
Also one of the most beautiful locations on this show. Walking around this garden you can perfectly imagine Lady Olenna, Sansa and Margaery eating lemon cakes and talking about the new King Joffrey.
Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, Northern Ireland (King’s Road)
These trees growing together to form a rare, mysterious hedge have served as a decoration to the King’s Road in the series. You can also use this road off screen if you ever want to.
Osuna, Spain (Daznak’s Pit)
An hour east of Seville you can find the small town of Osuna where Queen Daenerys is saved by Drogon and defeats the Meereen slave masters in season 5 of the famous show.
According to sources, this scene took 12 days to shoot.
Minčeta Tower, Dubrovnik, Croatia (House of the Undying)
The highest point along the city walls of Dubrovnik is actually the House of the Undying which appears in season two when Daenerys is kidnapped by the warlocks but later saved by Drogon.
