Although sites range from Northern Ireland to Malta and elsewhere in Europe, our favourites are in Croatia.
And remember, Auto Europe can assist you with car hire in Croatia for a mythical journey into the world of Game of Thrones.
Qarth in Game of Thrones is a major port city protected by a stone wall and sturdy gates. In the reality, this place is known as Lokrum.
Lokrum lies south-east of Dubrovnik, and boasts the most beautiful landscape such as a beautiful green forest and the shimmering blue sea in the background, ideal for visitors. There is an old walled town on the uninhabited island without any hotels, shops or restaurants, only with the ruins of an old Benedictine monastery. This gives you the feeling of going back in time. Lokrum is mainly used for filming. Besides the breathtaking panoramas you can swim, sunbathe and visit the botanical gardens.
Palace Gardens (Trsteno)
To really get the feeling of being on the set of Game of Thrones, you absolutely must visit the Arboretum Trsteno. The arboretum is the Palace Garden in the series,w here various protagonists plot up conspiracies and exchange secrets. The arboretum in Croatia is one of the most important sites in Game of Thrones.
Trsteno is located about 12 miles north-west of Dubrovnik. It was created in the 15th century as part of a summer residence of a noble family. Other attractions here include the magnificent Gothic-Reinaissane architectural gems – a fountain, a mill, a pavillion and the most amazing flora.
