Love Game of Thrones? Why not Visit the Seven Kingdoms!
Peter Jackson’s world-beating Lord of the Rings trilogy sparked a whole new industry, as cinetourists raced to see the beautiful, real-world locations where the film was shot.
With its beautiful locations accompanying global mania, Game of Thrones has begun to attract a tourist industry of its own – and luckily for Europeans, it’s all shot a little closer than New Zealand!
The hot Adriatic shoreline of Croatia provided the show’s directors with the perfect setting for King’s Landing. Dubrovnik’s Old City is the location for countless market scenes and the ancient city walls get a lot of camera time, too! Further up the coast, Roman Emperor Diocletian’s palace in Split is also featured heavily.
Iceland’s impressive volcanic backdrop instantly comes to mind when we think about fantasy landscapes and epic proportions. Some of the more magical Game of Thrones locations are here, from the scenes set Beyond the Wall, to the volcanic, thermally-heated cave visited by Jon and Ygritte.
The real star of Game of Thrones – and something that lasts a lot longer than any of its notoriously mortal characters! – is the stunning countryside of Northern Island’s beautiful counties. Castle Ward in County Down is the setting for many of the interior shots involving the House of Stark.
