Meanwhile, in King’s Landing

The Game of Thrones King’s Landing scenes have been filmed in Dubrovnik since Season 2.

The show filmed here last September, and is currently filming parts of Season 6 in Ireland, so I didn’t get to see them this time. But I SAW SOME OF THE SPOTS THEY FILMED AT IN THE PAST!☺️

This is from the last episode of last season… and one of the most shocking scenes from the show…

Cersei's-WalkofShame-S05E10

Cersei’s Walk of Atonement – this is one of the most unforgettable TV scenes😁

at night

it looks a little different, standing on the steps at night w/ laundry hanging and patio cafes😄

Varys being sneaky…

Tyrion and Varys on the wall of Fort Bokar, w/Lovrijenac in background (and they added two CGI towers)

Quite a few scenes filmed on / in Fortress Lovrijenac…

This scene where the townspeople are protesting was on the steps of the Dominican Monastery…

The Iron Throne…… I guess HBO donated the one and only original throne to the city of Dubrovnik last year. They didn’t show the throne in Season 5, I don’t think, so I don’t know if they will replace it with something else? Not sure the plan. But today, the throne sits in Dubrovnik on a side street that leads up to Ploce Gate. You have to buy something from the shop in order to take pictures in the throne (seriously😐), and the cheapest thing is $4.44. But, I needed to sit in that chair.

*********Please note, world’s worst photographer is snapping the photos, and the world’s worst picture-poser is sitting in the chair.

This is the best one… blurry:/

In the next picture, the photographer told me to pose like this:

Ned Stark, lookin' all hard

Turned out like this:

Hmmmm… looks almost exactly the same, No?

Beauuutiful! If Game of Thrones, the blue-blue water and history aren’t enough to get you to visit, then consider this: the nation-state of Dubrovnik (or Republic of Ragusa) was the first nation/republic to officially recognize America’s independence in 1776 (they’re very proud of this👍🏼😍)!

Next up:  Montenegro (Monte-whaaaaaat?)
