Channel your inner Targaryen or Stark at these five locations around the world
HBO’s Game of Thrones locations are absolutely superlative in all the various regions, and any hardcore “Thronie” can bear witness.
Aside from having one of the biggest production budgets of any TV series ever, every episode of the final season is supposed to come in at around $15 million.
Visiting the genuine areas of Westeros is a fantasy for any Game of Thrones fan.
Here are the best ones for you.
- Croatia: Dubrovnik is the shooting location for King’s Landing, the capital of Westeros. Stradun, the city’s main street, is the place where Cersei Lannister endured her naked penance walk through screaming crowds.
Iceland: The wintry vistas of Thingvellir National park fill in as the backdrop of the Eyrie. Scenes of the Night’s Watch and the wildlings were recorded at the stormy Skaftafall National Park. Guests to this little island country expanded an incredible 340 percent from 2010 to 2018, due in no small part to out of control aficionados of the show.
- Morocco: Ait Ben Haddou is the home to Yunkai, a city freed by Daenerys Targaryen. Both the mummy and Gladiator were also shot at the UNESCO World Heritage site.
- Essaouira: The beachfront serves as the city of Astapor slaver’s Bay, where Daenerys meets the Unsullied army force.
- Ireland: Ireland’s beautiful dark hedges serve as the Kingsroad, the longest highway of the seven kingdoms. A young Arya stark rode a cart through the hazy way to escape from King’s Landing.
