More on GoT: Original Iron Throne Coming to Croatia in June!

While we’re still on the topic of Game of Thrones, here’s some good news for the fans that are now flocking to Croatia to walk in the footsteps of the show’s star characters. Not everyone can be a snobby slave extra, but now they can at least sit on the Iron Throne which will soon be displayed in the fictional King’s Landing and real town of Dubrovnik. Who knows, I may even get down off my highgarden horse and make the trip from my Mereen house in Klis to the capital for another brush with royalty. 

 

 

In addition to GoT tours and memorabilia offered throughout the city, it's been confirmed that the original Iron Throne used for filming scenes in King’s Landing was practically gifted to Dubrovnik as they purchased it for very little money.  Many fanatics are unpleasantly surprised to not see at least a replica somewhere in the city and now their prayers to the Lord of Light will be answered with the real thing at the start of June. The throne will be a permanent fixture on this real life fantasy set and a GoT musuem is also planned for Dubrovnik’s main pedestrian street, Stradun. 

 

 

There’s no better time than now to plan your trip to explore several of the Seven Kingdoms in Croatia and sit on the throne from which the most powerful rulers of Westeros once ruled the land. For those interested in GoT tours Vetus Itinera offers 1 or 5 day tours that follow the rocky path from King’s Landing in Dubrovnik to Mereen in Klis with the sight of a famous bathing scene, national parks, islands and historic cities in between! 

 

 

The 5 day tour also includes a stop at the Walls of Ston and gives you a chance to check off one of Conde Nast Traveler’s choices on their list of 50 Things to Do in Europe Before You Die. Eat oysters in the very same place the travel pros suggest you taste this delicacy. That sounds to me like the perfect opportunity to kill two ravens with one stone!

Sneak Peek On Game of Thrones Set In Diocletian Palace

Split portal did it again, where nobody can't sneak in, their photographers can. One of them, our friend Goran Les just published another great photo gallery from the set of Game of Thrones in Split. To be more precise, in Diocletian's Palace basement halls. This is probably the first time we can see something that looks like a raw setting of the scene we saw in this extremely popular show, the queen Daenerys' throne hall. Check out gallery here.
