Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik in Croatia is a walled city that has been used for a number of scenes in the hit TV series, Game of Thrones. Dubrovnik is a beautiful location for photography, and the warm weather, and beautiful scenery make it a great holiday destination. It's particularly interesting for Game of Thrones fans.

As you walk around the old city of Dubrovnik, you will be able to recognise a number of locations, including The Western Habour, which was used as the "King's Landing" in the TV series.
