The city of Dubrovnik in Croatia was one of the main locations for the filming of the HBO television series Game of Thrones (GOT). Most of the scenes from King's Landing throughout seasons 2,3,4,5 and 8 were filmed in the city center and its surroundings. This seminar will explore the filming of GOT in Dubrovnik intertwined with all the behind-the-scenes and production trivia placing the series in Dubrovnik’s historic context.

George R.R. Martin, the writer of the fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Fire that the show was based on once said of the book setting "It's an authentic medieval city surrounded by walls, part of the world's cultural heritage. I first saw it at night. As we walked around the city, I had the impression that the walls glowed in the dark. The whole city shone. A beautiful place." Given that Dubrovnik was one of the most historically important and beautiful medieval cities in Europe, it is no wonder that D.B. Weiss and David Benioff chose Dubrovnik as Kings Landing, which is the capital of the Seven Kingdoms in the fictional world of Westeros.

Led by an expert on Dubrovnik history and local traditions, Nikoleta Moretić, this interactive seminar will show participants all the Game of Thrones filming trivia and behind-the-scenes gossip intertwined with some of the real history of Dubrovnik. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of the Game of Thrones filming facts and real stories of making one of the most popular TV shows in the world.

Nikoleta Moretić has a bachelors in hospitality and service management. She is currently working as a tour guide and pursuing a master degree in public relations. A history buff she enjoys talking about Dubrovnik history and anything else she is truly passionate about, such as Game of Thrones.

Informative and entertaining

I was a fan of the series, but even more interested in seeing the actual locations in Croatia. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and lives there. She had inside information on the filming, and how they recreated parts of the city for filming. Fun insight into the actors and what is was like being an extra. Someday I shall visit Croatia just because of the real history that took place there.
