Want To See King’s Landing And Canto Bight In One Trip? Visit Dubrovnik

If you’d like to stop by Game of Thrones’ King’s Landing or place your bets at a casino in Star Wars’ Canto Bight, you can kill two birds in one stone in a single European city.

You’ll find Dubrovnik in the south of Croatia, perched on the Adriatic coast. It’s famed for its 16th century stonework and scenic coastal views and has played host to iconic films and TV shows like Game of Thrones, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Robin Hood.

While you probably won’t run into any Lannisters or Lando Calrissian, there’s plenty to see and do in Dubrovnik.

Take a walk in the shoes of the men of the Night’s Watch with a Game of Thrones Walking Tour, where you’ll be taken through all the parts of the Old City where some of the series’ most memorable scenes were filmed.

If you consider yourself more of a Star Wars nerd fan, you can head to a galaxy far far away just across town. There’s also a Star Wars Walking Tour of the UNESCO-protected historical centre of Dubrovnik, where the latest fantasy flick was filmed.

What are you waiting for? Westeros awaits.
