12 Game of Thrones Filming Locations You Can Visit in Real Life
Hey guys, this is Dubrovnik, Croatia...
... which, for all you Game of Thrones fans out there, is basically just KING’S LANDING IRL.
Dubrovnik is an especially natural fit for King's Landing, though, namely because the city is surrounded by ancient walls, which make for a perfect backdrop for GoT’s medieval-slash-magical setting.
Here are all of the most recognizable filming spots in Dubrovnik.

2. Still on the Walk of Atonement, when Cersei straight-up fell, Season 5:
