Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones

by JuJuB


If you can’t get enough of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen and eagerly await the next Game of Thrones episode, then consider going on an GOT inspired vacation.

There have been six seasons of the popular HBO fantasy series drama and so far it has been filmed in some of the most beautiful locations around the world. Scenes have been filmed in Girona, Spain at the stunning Girona Cathedral, which was built between the 11th and 18th centuries. The Battle of Castle Black, a battle during the Conflict Beyond the Wall and the War of the Five Kings, was filmed in Northern Island. The towers of Winterfell were filmed at The Stangford Castle Ward Estate and the Castle Ward towers, also in Northern Ireland. One of the most striking locations is used as the Road From King’s Landing, which is filled at the Dark Hedges in Northern Ireland. It is a romantic tunnel of these gorgeous intertwined beech trees.

There are organized tours for dedicated GOT fans where you can tour filming locations from other season as wells, such as Cushendun Caves which are thought to be more than 400 million years old, and Shane’s Castle, a ruined castle near Randalstown in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, all used as scenes in the show. In Dublin, scenes were shot in the Cistercian Abbey of St. Mary’s Dublin, which was founded in 1139 by the Benedictine monks of Savigny. Visit Ballintoy Harbour, a location where Theon Greyjoy came ashore on Pyke Island.

You can also visit the locations on your own and tour at your own pace. For example, an excursion to Sibenik, a historic city in Croatia, will uncover Braavos, a city against the Freehold. Visit Azure Window in Malta where Daenery’s and Dragos wedding has taken place. The Azure Window is a gorgeous limestone natural arch that was created after two limestone sea caves collapsed. It is located on the Maltese island of Gozo, near Dwejra Bay on the Inland Sea.

The Long Bridge is a GOT structure that is said to be located in the Free City of Volantis. In real life, it is the Roman Bridge located in Cordoba, Spain.

The good news is that there’s more Game of Thrones to come, which means more areas to explore.
