6 of the Top Game Of Thrones Film Locations in Real Life

6 of the Top Game Of Thrones Film Locations in Real Life

Game of Thrones has become one of the most watched and popular TV shows since its first episode aired.

It has been analyzed inside and out, and fans embraced the characters (even their flaws), discussed theories and have anticipated deaths and betrayals with each airing.

If you love GoT, then you must’ve wanted to visit its location sites to relieve your favorite episodes.
Here are some of the locations in the hit show.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

You’ll instantly recognize Dubrovnik as King’s Landing if you are a big fan of the show. This location is probably the most famous and recognizable.

It is the capital of the Seven Kingdoms and exudes regal splendor.

It’s easy to fall in love with the city’s old world charm and it also comes as no surprise as to why this place was chosen as a major filming location of Game of Thrones.

Alcazar of Seville, Spain

If you’ve been to Seville you’ll quickly notice the similarities between the Alcazar and Dorne’s Sunspear.

This Andalusian setting is one of the biggest attractions in the region.

Explore the grounds and imagine being part of the hit show.

This regal palace will also take you back in time with its old world architecture, layout and design.

Try to go as early as possible to avoid the crowds that want to do and experience the same things as you.

Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland

This eerie site may seem familiar to you; you might recall the scene when Arya Stark fled King’s Landing disguised as a boy.

The tree-lined path is simply stunning, it elicits mixed feelings of dread and wonder, a strange but distinct mix.

The Dark Hedges (known as King’s Road in the show) is also recognized as one of the most beautiful places, not just in Europe, but in the world.

Aït Benhaddou, Morocco

You will recognize this UNESCO World Heritage Site in Morocco as the home of the Unsullied — Astapor.

The episode that featured this location was about the almost-but-not-quite-assassination of Daenerys.

This place has also been the site of many filming sessions for both movies and TV.

The fortress and the surrounding environment make for a perfect set.

Vatnajökull, Iceland

The characters of the show always make a big fuss about the Wall and what’s beyond it; this filming location in Iceland is the latter’s embodiment.

Cold, amazing and beautiful are just some of the adjectives that describe it. It almost has a mystical feel, when you get the chance to see it.

If its sheer natural beauty doesn’t elicit awe, discovering that it has several lakes and volcanoes underneath probably will.

Castle of Zafra, Spain

Known as the Tower of Joy in GoT, is an important part of the story. The tower was the birthplace of one of the main characters, Jon Snow.

This 12th century relic in Guadalajara, Spain is in a remote location, making it an ideal filming destination for the show.
