Dubrovnik Croatia is one of the most beautiful places in all of Croatia. The city is where the vastly popular TV series Game of Thrones filmed. The land is full of culture, and we have five places where any Game of Thrones fan would love to visit.

The Jesuit Stairs –The Jesuit Stairs are a part of the Game of Thrones lore where the infamous "Walk of Shame" scene takes place. Spanish architecture riddles the stairs with beauty from Gundulic Square to St. Ignatius Church. The scene in Game of Thrones has launched these spots' popularity to new heights, making them all some of the most often visited places in town. The charming view of the city is a magnificent sight from the top of the stairs.

Fort Lovrijenac – This area is known as St. Lawrence Fortress. It's on the outskirts of the western walls of the Town of Dubrovnik. Know as the "Red Keep," this is famous to fans of the show. Here you can catch a view of Blackwater Bay. Anyone who visits can be sure to navigate the fort and experience its ancient lore that lies within its walls.

City Walls – The Walls of the city played a major deciding factor with producers when selecting Dubrovnik, and the wall is what made them ultimately decide to shoot the series there. Many scenes in the movie feature the Medieval style walls, which include views near the Narrow Sea, and many of the shows private walks were taken on the walls. There is a small fee to take a tour, which will allow you to learn all of the wall's history. There are three main entrances, and while taking tours, you get a chance to see Lovrijenac Fortress and capture a beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea.

Tresteno Arboretum – One of the primary filming locations of the show known as Kings Landing and Red Keep's Garden is known as Tresteno Arboretum. It is located 10 miles from the city of Dubrovnik.
