Winter is here. Filming locations of the "Game of Thrones" series
Guides | 17.04.2019
The "Game of Thrones" series was filmed in the most beautiful places on the planet. Many locations, although they look unreal, actually exist. While impending danger is quickly approaching Westeros, we've put together some of the locations during filming from all the seasons.
King's Landing
Dubrovnik, Croatia

Croatia has, for many fans of the series, long been associated with King's Landing. The main castle, where the ruler of the seven kingdoms sits on the Iron Throne, was filmed in several places throughout the country. The most famous scenes were filmed in the old city of Dubrovnik. For example, on the Baroque Staircase, where the scandalous episode with Cersei was filmed.
The Land Beyond The Wall
Kirkjufell, Iceland

Most of the episodes of the lands behind the wall were filmed in Iceland. When Sandor Clegane joined the fraternity, he saw a mountain in the shape of an arrowhead in a flame. Kirkjufell became this mountain in the series. Next to it, John Snow found a bundle of dragon glass daggers, and you can still see the mountain in season 6 in the Bran Stark's visions.
Dorne
Seville, Spain

Everyone remembers the beautiful and radiant Water Gardens; the residence of the rulers of Dorn. This is the Alcázar de Segovia in Seville, Spain. You can stroll along the beautiful Moorish-style palace and find the veranda where the daughters of Oberyn Martell sat and planned how to avenge their father.
The Free city of Braavos
Šibenik, Croatia

The ancient city of Šibenik in Croatia is the place where the Iron Bank with all the money of Westeros is located in the Game of Thrones world, and where the Arya Stark training episodes in the Faceless Order were filmed.
Winterfell Castle
Castle Ward, Northern Ireland

Winterfell was filmed in several locations. But the barnyard castle Ward made the most frequent appearances. King Robert Baratheon arrives here in season 1 with his retinue, and here John Snow and Sansa Stark reunite in season 7.
The Lands Of Eternal Winter
Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland

The deserted cold expanse of the Vatnajökull glacier has become the location for filming the lands behind the wall. During the summer this place doesn't look so harsh, but during the winter, it's exactly like in the series. All the shooting in Iceland took place in the winter at -25°C and often in during strong winds. So the actor's tense faces were all genuine.
Dragon Stone Beach
Basque country, Spain

Playa de Itzurun in the Basque Country, Spain, became the place where Daenerys arrived with her army of unsullied and Dothraki after crossing the Narrow Sea. The Dragon Stone Beach itself is actually not below the castle, but 100km away.
The Great Sept of Baelor
Marsamxett harbour, Croartia

In Fort Manoel in Malta, the most shocking scene of the entire series was filmed. Spoiler Alert: it happened in the last episode of season 1, leaving all viewers absolutely speechless.
Mance Rayder Camp
Dimmuborgir (The Dark Fortress), Iceland

Dimmuborgir or the "Black Fortress" is, according to Icelandic legends, the gateway to another world. This lava formation looks lifeless. An ideal place for filming the camp of the wild Mance Rayder.
The gardens of King's Landing
Trsteno, Croatia

Olenna Tyrell or the Queen of Thorns was discussing the life of King's Landing with her niece Margaery on the veranda in Trsteno Arboretum, Croatia. Brother and sister Margaery and Loras Tyrell also walked here and dreamed of ruling the 7 kingdoms.
Sept of Baelor
Girona, Spain

Sept Baelor, like many locations in the series, was filmed in different places. The Cathedral of Santa Maria in Girona was featured in the series when the battle of the High Sparrow and Cersei Lannister began in the Royal Harbour. Some scenes from Braavos were also filmed in Girona.
Dragonpit
Seville, Spain

An important scene, where they met Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister, John Snow and the trophy from the lands behind the wall - a white walker took place in the ruins of the Italica amphitheatre. The southern people, by the way, saw the undead with their own eyes for the first time and realised that winter was definitely coming.
Tower of Joy
Guadalajara, Spain

The turning point, which reveals the origin of the "bastard" of John Snow, was filmed in Spain. A moment where all fans were lost for words took place in the fortress of the Castillo de Zafra. And now for even more questions: Who is John Snow and will he ride a dragon?
The Iron Islands
County Antrim, Northern Ireland

The meeting of Theon Greyjoy with his sister Yara was filmed at Ballintoy Bay in Northern Ireland. Recognising some of the places may be difficult, particularly as much of the series has been created by computer graphics, but you'll definitely be able to imagine the Iron Islands.
Highgarden Castle
Córdoba, Spain

Castle Tyrell, the richest home of the seven kingdoms, is located near the city of Cordoba in Spain. This is the Castillo Almodovar del Rio. It loks just as impressive in real life.
Dragonstone
Basque country, Spain

The scenes on Dragonstone were filmed on the island of Gaztelugatxe in the Basque Country, Spain. Although the castle itself was created by computer graphics, the no less epic narrow bridge, along which Daenerys walked with her retinue, is real.
