The Targaryens made the Iron Throne from the swords of the defeated rulers, fused by dragonfire, establishing King's Landing as their capital city, and remained the ruling power on the continent, until deposed by Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon. The location chosen by the Game of Thrones producers to become King's Landing was Dubrovnik, a medieval walled city in Croatia.
Cersei’s Walk of Shame
Cersei Lannister walked naked through this street as a sign of penance. This iconic scene of season five takes place in St Dominic Street, linking Ploče Gate with the main street, Stradun, in the magnificent city of Dubrovnik, in Croatia. This is the same street where the Gold Cloaks kill one of King Robert’s illegitimate sons, and where Tyrion and Bronn witness a protest speech in season two.
The towers of Castle Ward, in North Ireland, are transformed into Winterfell, where the head of House Stark rules over his people.
Daenerys and Khal Drogo wedding
Daenerys Targaryen and Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo get married on the outskirts of Pentos, obtaining 3 dragon eggs as a wedding present. The wedding scene was filmed in the stunning Azure Window, a rock arch entering the sea located in the coast of Malta.
Forests of the North
Tollymore Forest Park, covering over 600 hectares at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland, serves as the location for the Forests of the North, where Ned Stark and his sons find the direwolf pups – Grey Wind, Lady, Nymeria, Summer, Shaggydog and Ghost. Also, it is in this forest that Theon Greyjoy is chased on a horseback by Ramsay Snow, the Bastard of Bolton.
At the beginning of the sixth season, Daenerys Targaryen, captive of the Dothraki, is led to one of their camps. What the Game of Thrones cast is actually traversing is the arid landscape of Bardenas Reales, in the south of Navarra, in Spain.
