About the event
On the GOT guided walking tour, our guides will take you through all the parts of Dubrovnik Old Town, where some of the most memorable scenes from the ongoing cultural phenomenon were filmed. These locations include The Pile Gate, where King Joffrey was faced with a citizens' riot and pelted with dung, the Lovrijenac fort (menacing Red Keep), and the place where the unsuccessful attack on King's Landing - the Battle of Blackwater - took place.
All Dubrovnik Game of Thrones filming locations, including ones from the final 8th season, are accompanied by commentary from a local guide with detailed scene descriptions and actual stills and images of scenes from the exact episodes they made an appearance on.
Throughout the tour, you can also hear exciting tidbits and gossip from behind the scenes about sets and actors, as some of our guides were Game of Thrones extras, stand-ins and members of the production crew.
Positioned just 15 minutes by boat from the Old Town port, Lokrum is the retreat island for the local people in search for a place to relax and enjoy the nature and crystal-clear sea. The Benedictines built a monastery with a church in 11th century. Legend has it that, in a raging storm, the English king Richard the Lionhearted landed on Lokrum in 1191, when he was returning home from one of the Crusades.
The island itself is a protected nature park, a car free place.
What to see on Lokrum: Benedictine monastery, Botanical Garden, “Dead Sea” salt water lake. Nice restaurants and bars under the pine trees. The island is a very shady place, a perfect getaway from summer heat.
On the island there is a Game of Thrones museum with original Iron throne used during the filming and explanations of all locations in Dubrovnik region where the series was shot.
ST. LAWRENCE FORT
Fort Lovrijenac (Fort of St. Lawrence) is located at the western side of the Old Town, outside the city walls on a 37 meters high cliff. It's also known as "Dubrovnik's Gibraltar".
Fort Lovrijenac has a triangular shape with three levels and was defended with 10 large cannons, being the largest and most famous called "Lizard". The walls facing the sea are up to 12 meters thick, but on the eastern side of the fortress facing Dubrovnik the walls are only 60 centimetres thick. Such construction was done purposely, in case the Fort was taken by an enemy it could easily be destroyed directly from the city walls and fort Bokar.
Above the door leading to the fortress there is a famous inscription carved in stone: “Non Bene Pro Toto Libertas Venditur Auro” (“Freedom cannot be sold for all the gold of the world”).
LUNCH: RAJSKI VRT RESTAURANT
Once the promenade around the Benedictine Monastery is over, visit Rajski Vrt. This restaurant offers its visitors to degust Mediterranean cuisine. To order nicely cooked vegetable pizza, prawns and seafood salads is a truly good idea. According to the guests' opinions, ice cream is tasty. Get your meal started with delicious wine or good beer. Enjoy great juice or delicious iced coffee.
