NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The web-based travel company Select Croatia (https://selectcroatia.com) introduces the Dalmatian hotspots of the hit TV series to celebrate the upcoming season six of Game of Thrones.
Dubrovnik was the main Croatian film location for King's Landing, a fictional city in the fifth season of the series, and is supposedly still featured in season six, since the whole cast and production crew was spotted in Dubrovnik on October 8, 2015. For series' fans, a visit to Dubrovnik will be like being in the series, because no special measures were necessary for the Old Town of Dubrovnik to play the fortified port city of King's Landing.
Another great destination to discover the setting of the fantasy series is Split, with its surrounding cities and villages. The famous Diocletian Palace is one of the settings in season four and five for several scenes. The Cathedral of St. Jacob and Sibenik were used in season five for the set of the Iron Bank, the biggest bank in the Game of Thrones world.
In order to experience all major film locations, Select Croatia suggest the following tours:
- Power & Beauty of Dubrovnik — a city tour that includes all major film locations;
- Discover Dalmatia's UNESCO Heritage: Split, Salona and Trogir — experience the scenes of the Meereen exteriors and the Braavos exteriors;
- Wines of Dalmatia and Krka Waterfalls — includes sightseeing of the Iron Bank and sets of numerous nature scenes from the show's fourth season.
"All Croatian Game of Thrones film locations were top attractions before the series was made. It is no surprise that producers choose Dalmatia for the series since the old cities of the three main Dalmatian centers are fairytale-like places," says Maja Gudelj, Director of Croatia and Mediterranean Yacht Charters. "By visiting these three locations, fans can enjoy real-life scenes combined with all that Dalmatia has to offer."
The entire portfolio of Select Croatia guided tours can be found on the company website. For more information about Select Croatia travel products, visit selectcroatia.com or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
