The Game of Thrones is not just about dragons, battles and palace intrigues, it is also about the lush forests, breathtaking ice-caps, blue seas and bustling cities that form the backdrop of this fantasy drama series. The snowy glaciers, the verdant countryside and stunning waterfronts shown in the series are very much part of the real world. These places are spectacular enough to inspire you to visit them on your next holiday.

Azure Window, Island of Gozo, Malta

This beautiful limestone rock is an excellent reason to visit the Island of Gozo in Malta. The surrounding waters are great for swimming, scuba diving and boating. Saint Lawrence, which is located nearby, is also an extremely popular holiday destination. In case you were wondering where the Dothraki wedding was shot in Season One, this is the place!

Mdina, Malta

The historic city of Mdina traces its history back 4,000 years. A walled city, its buildings reflects a beautiful mix of medieval and baroque architecture. Featured as the King’s Landing in Season One, this tiny city has just one hotel. The narrow streets, museums and St. Paul Cathedral are not to be missed.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

This stunning coastal town in Croatia has rightly been termed the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. With impressive medieval forts, sunny beaches and churches and museums bursting at the seams with art, Dubrovnik has always been popular with tourists.

However, following the popularity of The Game of Thrones, fans have been flocking to this town in droves to see the places where their favourite scenes have been shot. The walls surrounding the city were used to portray the scenes in King's Landing and the Red Keep.

Ballintoy, Moyle, United Kingdom

Remember the port town of Lordsport in the show? This is the town where it was shot. Huge waves crashing against majestic limestone cliffs is an awe-inspiring sight. If you have a keen interest in history, the Ballintoy Parish Church is worth a visit.
