Due to its unique history, the city of Dubrovnik looks like a living museum in which every tiny street, building or a monument tells a story of times long past. This was what attracted the show's producers who immediately recognized that the unique beauty of Dubrovnik is the perfect backdrop for the magical Game of Thrones world.
Besides the architecture, famous Dubrovnik City Walls and colorful city gardens in which royal intrigue and secret plans take place, the blue sea surrounding the city was a perfect setting for some of the most famous battle scenes in the show. The attempt of Stannis Baratheon to take over the King's Landing in the Battle of the Blackwater or the escape of Sansa Stark from the infamous Joffrey Lannister are just few of them.

Since Croatia has abundance of UNESCO protected monuments it's no wonder that after Dubrovnik the show's producers quickly discovered yet another unique city which proved ideal for the Game of Thrones world. This city is of course the 1700 years old Split whose stunning Diocletian's Palace became home for the dragons of the Queen Khaleesi.

The Klis Fortress
Visit of Khaleesi to the city of Meereen was shot on the Klis Fortress which dates back to the 3rd century and was an important battle point in Dalmatia. Today it's one of the best preserved defense structures in Croatia so it's no wonder it was a perfect setting for the rise of slaves in the Game of Thrones. It's situated some 15 km from the city of Split so be sure to put this location on your Game of Thrones must-see list for Croatia.
