10 Game of Thrones Filming Locations in Dubrovnik

For one minute and 40 seconds let us all silently imagine the Game of Thrones theme song is playing. Or for anyone dedicated enough, open up your multimedia player of choice and play that tune. Ready? GO! 

One minute and forty seconds later…

Are we back? Good. Excellent.

Game of Thrones. It’s exciting isn’t it? All that murder and fire and incest and sex and naked people and not naked people and ugly people and pretty people and horses! What’s not to love? Apart from the unbearably long wait between books/seasons, of course.

I’d even go so far as to say Game of Thrones, the world of Westeros and beyond, is on par with Harry Potter as winner of the “Greatest Fictional Universes Ever Invented” category at an awards ceremony that doesn’t yet exist. It blows my mind to think that such a complex and intricate universe, storyline and myriad of plots came from just one man’s mind. It also blows my mind to think that one man loves killing people off that much but I digress.

I have to be honest here and admit that as much as I love Game of Thrones (spoiler: a lot), I’m not too keen on HBO’s interpretation of it. Don’t get me wrong, I do watch it and I do quite enjoy watching it (as much as someone who’s 3 seasons behind and not in a hurry to catch up can claim that) but I also think that the TV series doesn’t quite deserve as much credit as it gets.

Because the books? They. Are. Amazing.

They take you to a whole different world! You zone out,  get way too invested in it all and the next thing you know you’re questioning whether brutally murdering a whiny little pre-teen boy with a curtain rail would actually be that frowned upon. We all know who I’m talking about here right? 

What I love about reading books more than watching TV is that you are in control of the setting. Your mind takes all of these words that have been printed onto paper by somebody else and moulds them into your very own interpretation of the scene, secret and personal to you. The book says the trees are green, but you decide what shade of green. The walls are crumbling post-battle, but just how bad is it? Is it just dust or huge, monstrous chunks of debris falling down and threatening to squish you like a bug?

That’s the beauty of books.

Which explains why, despite not being overly keen on the TV series itself, I still find myself happily watching Game of Thrones. Because the way HBO have filmed, and the locations they have chosen, are absolutely incredible! It’s almost exactly how I imagined Westeros, King’s Landing and beyond to look.

This year I have two travel goals. One is to explore more of my own backyard and the other is to satisfy the Game of Thrones nerd in me by visiting as many Game of Thrones filming locations as possible, starting with Croatia.

Or, to be more precise, Dubrovnik.

Just a few hours by bus from Kotor (the city which I may or may not have fallen madly in love with), Dubrovnik was naturally the next stop on my little rendezvous in the Balkans.

Travelling during off season meant that I was lucky to be able to avoid the hoards of tourists who seem to descend on Dubrovnik as soon as the thermometer hits the mid-teens. On the flip side, though, it also meant that a lot of tourist-oriented activities and businesses just weren’t functioning. They were hibernating for winter.

The one thing I really really wanted to do in Dubrovnik was go on a Game of Thrones tour. I wanted to see all the locations, learn all the facts and hear all the inside scoop. There are loads of different companies in the area offering up the same sort of tour, so I sort of thought I’d get my pick of the bunch.

I was wrong.

There wasn’t one single company running the tours during the winter! In fact, almost all of them were starting up the week after I planned to leave Dubrovnik. I could have forked out the money for a private tour, but although I was keen on doing a tour, I wasn’t $100 worth of keen.

So, armed with a map of the city, this Radio Times guide and my trusty iPhone SE, I went off in search of all things Westerosi (is that a word?).

And boy, oh boy, did Dubrovnik deliver!!

Now for 10 Game of Thrones filming locations in Dubrovnik, tried and tested by yours truly!

There’s a potential for spoilers here, so if you’re not 100% up-to-date on the series, proceed at your own risk.

St Dominika Street

This set of steps is used as the setting for loads of different scenes across the series, but most notably as the place where almost all of Robert Baratheon’s bastard sons were killed. It was the first filming location I came across during my first jaunt through the old city, and I actually did a little fan-girl flap of the hands and let out a little piggy squeal as I rounded the corner. Then I stood like an awkward turtle for about 10 minutes, waiting for somebody to walk by so I could ask them to take my photo sat on the steps. Nobody came, so I made do with an awkward selfie of half of my head (because my arms are not long enough to get the whole of my head plus the background in shot) instead.

Ethnographic Museum

Probably the most un-photogenic of all the filming locations, Dubrovnik’s Ethnographic Museum may be better recognised as one of the brothels frequented by some of the key characters such as Tyrion Lannister and Oberyn Martell. Hidden away in one of the back alleys of the Old Town, the unsuspecting building is nothing special, but I’d hedge my bets that more people stand outside taking pictures than go inside and explore the museum, if the looks of boredom etched across the ladies inside is anything to go by at least! Had I had more time (and less dehydration!) I definitely would have given it a go, but alas, an iced bottle of lemon water was calling my name.

Pile Gate

The entrance to the Old Town, otherwise known as Pile Gate, constantly crops up in the series, but there’s no one specific scene that springs to mind when you see it. It’s more of a background scene – like an extra, except a setting instead of a person.

“Those” Steps

 We all know what steps I’m talking about right? I don’t think there’s a more iconic set of steps in the world of TV and film than these, the ones where Cersei made her Walk of Shame! 

I stumbled across the Jesuit Steps by accident, as they aren’t actually featured in the Radio Times guide I mentioned earlier. Robin Hood was being filmed in the main street and so there were all sorts of diversions put in place, so I got a little lost looking for my way out of the Old Town. Lo and behold a little while later I found myself on the south side of Gundulic Square, completely alone except for a few little ragamuffins who were skiving off school.

Had they not been there I totally would have done my own reenactment of Cersei’s scene, although would have kept my clothes firmly on my body.

Bokar Fortress

This one confused me. I’m not sure if it’s always inaccessible to mere peasants like me, or if it was just closed because Robin Hood was using it to frolic with his Merry Men, but I could not get anywhere near Bokar Fortress, which was frequently used as a filming location throughout the series. What I could do, however, was stand on the Walls and take a really bad photo of what I thought might be Bokar Fortress, having only the Radio Times guide as my ally.

Minçeta Tower

This was my favourite. It’s kind of boring compared to a lot of the others, but to me it was the most instantly recognisable!

In the Game of Thrones world, Minçeta Tower is better known as House of the Undying, that place where Khaleesi walks around and around looking for an entrance before entering and having that really trippy experience in the quest to find her dragons, culminating in one of the dragons setting fire to a man. Ring any bells? 

To get to the tower, you have to pay entry to walk the City Walls. It’s 150 Kuna (about £17) but is totally worth it, not only for the views across the city and the sea, but also because the City Walls ticket also grants you access to Lovrijenac Fortress. Two for one? Bargain!

Pile/Blackwater Bay

Pile is Blackwater Bay. There’s no need to beat around the bush on that one! I don’t think there’s a single angle of Pile that hasn’t been used on the show. In this next photo, just imagine a bunch of Game of Thrones-y people walking along the gangway, and some old school sailing boats in the distance.

Are you with me? Are we seeing the same scene in our minds?

And then there’s this view, overlooking Pile and the walled city, taken from half way up the steps to Lovrijenac Fortress.

Dem likes though. At the time of posting it, I had less followers on IG than the photo had likes. Is it sad that my proudest moment of this year so far has been the reception of this photo? For that, Game of Thrones, I thank you.

Lovrijenac Fortress

Most well-known in the World of Ice and Fire as the place where that twit Joffrey had his Name Day festivities, Lovrijenac Fortress was, without a doubt, the most arduous of Game of Thrones filming locations to get to! There are at least 60,000 steps to climb up to get there, and you might just about collapse and die before even reaching the halfway mark! I jest, of course. There’s apparently only 175 steps, but let me tell you, they are steep. And Croatia can get hot, even during late February – early March!

Aside from admiring the breathtaking views across the Walled City, there’s not a lot to do in the fortress itself when you’re up there. And by that I mean there’s no information. You know those informative placards or boards you normally see in places like this, telling you all about the history and why it was built? Yeah, it doesn’t have any. Use your imagination (or Wikipedia). There is, however, a chair for you to sit on, a non-functioning cannon to play with and a pretty hilarious man working the entrance.

Speaking of, you should definitely take Lovrijenac Fortress’s opening times as more of a suggestion than fact, as when they say they close shop at 3pm during off-season, you can heave your sweaty self up that damn rock for 2:40pm and it’ll already be closed. So yeah.

As I mentioned earlier, entry to Lovrijenac Fortress is included in the City Walls ticket, but the catch is that you have to visit on the same day, or the next day.

Trsteno Arboretum

I won’t go on too much about this location because to be honest my absolute failure in understanding exactly what an arboretum is is totally deserving of its own post (which can be found right here), but I will say that Trsteno Arboretum is known to some as the palace gardens of the Red Keep. It’s where that heroine of epic proportions, Olenna Tyrell, manages to sweet-talk poor, unsuspecting Sansa into becoming a double-edged sword and spilling all her darling hubby’s secrets. There are plenty of thorns hidden about the place too – perfect for the Queen of Thorns!

Though not located in the city of Dubrovnik itself, the arboretum is located in – yup, you guessed it! – Trsteno, which is a district of Dubrovnik and is wholly accessible by bus from the main bus station, so is totally deserving of a place on this list.

Lokrum Island

Honorary mention for somewhere I didn’t manage to visit because I’m an idiot who doesn’t properly plan things!

Lokrum Island, used as a representation of the City of Qarth, is situated a short ferry ride from the harbour of Dubrovnik and, not only does it look absolutely gorgeous (seriously – get on Google and check for yourself!) but while you’re there YOU CAN SIT ON THE ACTUAL IRON THRONE!!! Like, the real deal!!

I was absolutely kicking myself for not planning ahead. The island was closed until the week after I left Dubrovnik, and so it was completely inaccessible to me. Oh well. The desire to sit on a fancy chair is a good enough reason to go back, right? 


If this wasn’t enough to quench your Game of Thrones thirst, I’d highly recommend checking out Karen’s review of a Game of Thrones tour she took in Malta and Lucy’s guide to Game of Thrones in Ireland!

And stay tuned in the near (and far) future for more Game of Thrones content – near because I have more posts on Croatia coming up and far because one of my favourite people is getting married in September near Girona which, you know, Game of Thrones. Exciting. Very. Yes.

    I love Game OF Thrones and Dubrovnik has been on my to visit list, for many many reasons, but this helps push it to the top of the list! xx

      It would honestly be like an absolute dream for you! Such a photogenic city too.

  2. 10th April 2017 / 12:05 pm

    I dont event watch Game Of Thrones and these places have me excited! Great post, I’ll be there in June so I’ll be sure to check them out 🙂 xx

      Even for people who aren’t fans, the scenery and views of all the locations are just incredible! 😀

    As I’ve already whinged in a previous comment, I gave up on GoT about four seasons in, for essentially the reasons that you mentioned – although many of these locations are immediately recognisable. My two last comments are: Holy f***, will he publish the Winds of Winter already? And have you read any of Sarah J. Maas’s books?

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 2:54 pm

      The more obscure ones I wouldn’t have recognised myself were it not for the faithful Radio Times!

      I’m so excited for that book. I’m kind of hoping it’ll be 2017/18 release, to coincide with the 2 parts of S7 on TV.
      No I haven’t…hops over to Google..

  4. 10th April 2017 / 4:00 pm

    I’m blown away by your fantastic photos! While I don’t watch/read Game of Thrones (at least, not yet), Dubrovnik certainly delivers in terms of beauty! I was there over ten years ago and barely remember anything, so it merits another trip over whilst in Europe. Thank you for inducing that wanderlust!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 2:55 pm

      Thank you so much! And inducing your wanderlust? No problem at all! 😀 Dubrovnik is absolutely gorgeous, with or without the Game of Thrones association!

  5. 10th April 2017 / 7:40 pm

    I had no idea this show was filmed in so many cool places. I also loved how you talked abouttbe power of booksans their ability to take us out of our reality for a bit. That’s why I love Harry Potter so much. Will have to vidit these sites and read these books.

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 2:56 pm

      Harry Potter is just something else altogether! As soon as I’ve finished my GOT voyage, HP will be next. There are so many locations in and around UK I’m actually kicking myself I haven’t been to any.

  6. 11th April 2017 / 2:47 am

    OMG! I didn’t realise that so much was filmed there! I LOVE Game of Thrones….. have read all the books (out so far) and even though I love the Tv series I have not watched the last two series. I agree it is not as good as reading the books! I am looking forward to a GOT marathon when I get a chance.

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 2:57 pm

      I’m probably not far away from where you are in terms of the series! My stepdad is up-to-date and I’m lagging WAY behind. The books are so fantastic I find it difficult to truly immerse myself into the TV series as I would with something else. Can’t wait for Winds of Winter to be released though…whenever that may be!

  7. 11th April 2017 / 1:17 pm

    I love GoT and your pics are instantly recognizable! I went to Girona where they film some of King’s Landing as well but with the CGI it’s hard to recognize unless you see it on TV, but Blackwater Bay, The House of the Undying, and Tyrell’s garden are straight out of the show it looks like!

    P.S. – I fell in love with Kotor too 🙂

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 2:58 pm

      Thanks Dave! 😀 That’s a shame about Girona being not as recognisable in real life, but I suppose part of the fun is just being there where you know it was filmed. In regards to Dubrovnik though, it’s crazy how little CGI was needed in some of the locations!

  8. 11th April 2017 / 2:54 pm

    Minçeta Tower looks eerie and fascinating at the same time. I can still remember that episode. The tower is perfect for that part of the episode. I would love to visit these iconic places someday.

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 2:59 pm

      Minçeta Tower was fab! I had it all to myself after waiting for a Japanese tour group of about 45 people to leave. Did I pretend I was Khaleesi? Of course! 😀

  9. 12th April 2017 / 4:37 am

    I must confess I have not seen one episode of Game of Thrones! I’ve heard of it, I know people binge watch it on Netflix and I learnt when I visited Iceland some of it had been filmed there. It looks like Dubrovnik is a good place to go for Games of Thrones fans too (Spring to Autumn). Your pics look amazing as always, I should watch an episode of Game of Thrones and look for them!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 3:03 pm

      GOT is one of those things you either get obsessed or completely not bothered, there is no in between haha. The most crazy landscapes were filmed in Iceland, I get so jealous of anyone who’s been there (you included!) for that exact reason.

  10. 12th April 2017 / 7:51 am

    This must be in my bucket list now! I would bring husband here in the near future, he will love this! He’s a sucker for GoT… imagine… I cant speak a word when we’re watching it! A trip here would be the best gift for him. Thanks for sharing!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 3:04 pm

      Oh he really would love it!! It’s location for so many more films and TV series too, not just Game of Thrones – I think one of the Star Wars was filmed there and when I was there they were filming Robin Hood to be released in 2018.

  11. 12th April 2017 / 12:04 pm

    I absolutely loved these photos and the point to point guide but I stopped reading at ‘where Cerci made her walk of shame’. I am afraid I haven’t yet reached that episode! I am at Episode 3 season 3. Such a shame I got hooked to Game Of Thrones so late. I will come back when I complete season 6!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 3:06 pm

      Oops! I’m so sorry – I didn’t think about the potential spoilers. I’ll go back and edit to insert a spoiler alert just in case 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the photos though 😀

  12. 12th April 2017 / 3:51 pm

    OMG THIS IS THE BEST POST IVE READ ABOUT CROATIA! yes, I had to put that in all caps, I just love Games of Thrones. Next time I’m traveling to Europe, this place is totally going to be on my list. I just pinned this! This post seriously made my day. thank you!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:25 pm

      Aahhh, you’re so sweet! My post made your day and your comment made mine – we’re even 😀

  13. 12th April 2017 / 4:12 pm

    I know I might get stoned to death for this but GOT was very difficult to follow…a lot of random stories grouped into one big story…not the biggest fan. HOWEVER, don’t crucify me yet, it is incredible to see some of the actual locations of filming. I am in love with Medieval architecture, stone and infrastructure. It would be cool to throw your own GOT themed party at one of these locations!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:31 pm

      No stoning from me – I totally get you! It took me three attempts to get into the books, but then something clicked and we suddenly got along like a house on fire. If you love the whole medieval architecture then you would LOVE Dubrovnik (and a lot of Croatia actually!).

  14. 12th April 2017 / 4:24 pm

    Such an incredible city – your photos are bumping it higher and higher on the bucket list! And the blessing of the off season is that you got some great shots without a million other tourists! Love it!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:31 pm

      I know, I lucked out big time! The city was basically empty but the weather was still gorgeous and the skies blue.

  15. 12th April 2017 / 4:47 pm

    Since I follow Game of Thrones religiously I have been dying to go its location! Although I knew that Dubrovnik is the location where most of the series is shot I dint know the exact spots. Thank you for sharing them, now I don’t have to hire a guide 😉

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:32 pm

      You’re welcome 😉 There are a few more dotted about the city but only used in passing on the show, so not really worth the mention! You’d definitely recognise them if you went for a wander though.

  16. 12th April 2017 / 5:40 pm

    I think my brother has read all (or most) of the Game of Throne books and I’ve seen probably one season of the show, so the locations are a little lost on me BUT the pictures are gorgeous so obviously Dubrovnik is well worth the visit, even if you’re not a huge Game of Thrones buff.

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:36 pm

      Absolutely! It’s hugely popular for cruises, and I think the whole age demographic of cruises is a bit higher than your typical GOT fans, but Dubrovnik is still a favourite spot for loads! It’s just gorgeous.

  17. 12th April 2017 / 6:14 pm

    Omg wow this is just the perfect timing. I am going to visit Croatia this summer and this is exactly what I was looking for.. Thanks for sharing

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:37 pm

      Ooh how exciting!! Hope you have an amazing time – it’s an absolutely gorgeous country, so I’m sure you will!

  18. 12th April 2017 / 6:15 pm

    These pictures are ahhhmazing! And how did I not know that Game of Thrones was filmed there!? 🙂

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:38 pm

      Because you didn’t want to ruin the illusion of King’s Landing being a real place? I can forgive you for that 😉

  19. 12th April 2017 / 8:32 pm

    I am so behind on the TV series but I love the visuals so its great to see the places in their natural state! Looks like you had a great time exploring them!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:38 pm

      I’m also a few series behind, but seeing all the locations had me wanting to catch up ASAP!

  20. 12th April 2017 / 10:15 pm

    I’ve watched a few episodes of Game of Thrones a while ago, but reading this post and seeing these pics makes me want to resume watching!! Lucky you!!

    • rhiydwi
      12th April 2017 / 10:39 pm

      The choice of locations honestly couldn’t be better for the show! Walking around it really felt like I could have been in the show.

  21. 12th April 2017 / 10:45 pm

    I never got into Game of Thrones, but Dubrovnik looks like such an amazing destination. These photos make me want to book a flight ASAP to explore the country!

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:19 pm

      It’s honestly so gorgeous! Perfect whether you’re into GOT or not!

  22. 13th April 2017 / 4:23 am

    OMG, these photos brought back such amazing memories. Dubrovnik is easily one of my favorite cities and I was lucky enough to visit in April and experience the same thing you did. The city was probably emptier when you were there. 🙂 Regardless, this your post made me nostalgic and excited. Especially with GOT final season around the corner 🙂

    Following your adventures around the world now! Happy travels X

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:19 pm

      Aw I’m so glad it brought back some nice memories for you 😀 Croatia is such a gorgeous country, right?!
      I seriously need to catch up on the show before S7! I’m so behind now haha. Thank you so much! x

    I had to skip through a large portion of your post (Sorry!) since I, unlike the rest of the world, have yet to see The Game of Thrones or read the books. These photos have convinced me that I need to start watching it immediately! However, I do enjoy reading books almost 98% of the time more rather than watch the film/tv series beforehand and so I might just start on that first. I do agree, Harry Potter does deserve the “Greatest Fictional Universe Ever Created” award. I am now curious to see how the Games of Thrones compares.

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:26 pm

      No worries, I totally don’t blame you! The fact that a lot of people may not have watched the show or been up-to-date with it was a super late afterthought. Oops!
      If you do want to get into the series I totally recommend the books first! They go into so much more depth and are way more enjoyable! It’s a lot more adult-oriented than HP though, that’s for sure.

  24. 13th April 2017 / 7:05 am

    Im a GoT fan to and did visit most of the film location around Old Town. These photos remunds me of my time in beautiful Dubrovnik

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:24 pm

      I don’t think the show’s creators could have picked a more perfect place!

  25. 13th April 2017 / 9:14 am

    Ahh amazing, I’d love to visit these places. GOT is one of my favourite fandoms. We went to Northern Ireland to do a Game Of Thrones tour once and I loved it haha.

      I so want to do that! But for somewhere so geographically close, NI is one hell of an effort to get to haha.

  26. 13th April 2017 / 12:43 pm

    I am super jealous, this looks amazing! I love GoT and really want to go to Croatia too. I can’t believe how many filming locations there are. Great post

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:28 pm

      There are actually a handful more in Dubrovnik too! And more around Split and the rest of the country. It’s a GOT-lover’s dream, honestly!

  27. Rimsha
    13th April 2017 / 1:26 pm

    Omg I feel like I just read something out of my travel fantasy! I’m SO glad I stumbled upon your post because I LOVE GoT as much as you and would totally go and visit all of these places as well. In fact, my intent to visit Croatia has been further strengthened after reading your post 🙂

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:30 pm

      Oh hi! In that case, I so hope you get to visit some day! It’d be like an absolute dream come true for you, like you’re walking right on through King’s Landing!

  28. 13th April 2017 / 5:49 pm

    Loved this. They were actually filming Game of Thrones a few days after I was in Dubrovnik back in 2012. I love seeing actual places I’ve been crop up in films. “Blackwater Bay” is where I learned to kayak for the first time. 😛

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:31 pm

      That is so cool! I kind of regret not learning to kayak there now, just so I’d be able to whap that sentence out at parties!

    FINALLY SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS READ THE BOOKS!!!! LOL I’m such a huge fan of the books and subsequently I also love the show and being able to visit some of the areas the show has been filmed in has been awesome! I even took a game of thrones tour around dubrovnik and they didn’t cover everything you have!!! Now I just need to plan a trip back to make my own tour based on your itinerary! 🙂

    • rhiydwi
      16th April 2017 / 1:32 pm

      Haha, I’m one of those weirdos who insists on reading ANY book before watching the film/TV interpretation. I’m actually kind of jealous of you now lol –
      I really wanted to do one of the tours but they weren’t available when I was over there! It makes me feel better knowing they didn’t cover all bases though 😉

    The hubs and I are big time Game of Throne fans, the books and the movies. I recognize all of these places. Pinned this for my bucket list!

    All the locations are so amazing specially the Lovrijenac Fortress..no matter where you are but the views are always breathtaking around you being in this city.

    I have all of the Game of Thrones books but haven’t read them all yet. I need to get on it if they are so much better than the show. They sure do film in some amazing locations for the show and I’m sure Croatia loves the tourism from GOT fans.

      They go into so much more depth and description, they’re honestly just amazing! If you love the series then the books will blow your mind.

    I am a big fan of GoT and I must say your post rocks! I would never find these locations on my own, thank you. Dubrovnik looks so beautiful, I wish there were some cheap flight from Barcelona.

      Aw, thank you! 😀
      I’m absolutely dreading Brexit when cheap UK-Europe flights may no longer exist. 🙁

    I have never watched an episode of Game Of Thrones in my life, it really hasn’t interested me, however I’m sure I’d be sucked in soon to watch it. The architecture of the buildings is amazing and I really love Eastern European countries for this, as a lot of them despite the oppression of communism in the 20th Century have been very underrated countries

      Eastern Europe has been new on my radar these past few months, but now I can’t get enough! Everything is so medieval and authentic, so beautiful!

    It’s now officially back in my head since season 6 was released haha.

    But seriously, beauutiful images!! How magical to see the old medieval towns and fortresses that have a real history behind them. Fingers crossed that when I get to visit, Jon Snow has finally made it and we can totally hang out.

    Thanks for sharing – I had several chuckles as always

    I absolutely cannot wait to go to Dubrovnik to see my favorite TV series being filmed here. It is so on my bucketlist. This is an amazing post especially the beauty about books.
