Vetus Itinera Travel Agency offers you a one-of-a-kind, completely authentic Game of Thrones tour of Croatia, one our multi-day tour arrangements.
Game of Thrones is a world of its own, a fantasy realm with a rich, detailed history and iconography that captivates you and makes you feel you are there, in a different realm. No wonder Croatia was chosen as a crucial filming location for the fourth season of the show, for it is a nation whose history reaches far into ancient times, and its architecture and monuments speak of eras long gone. We at Vetus Itinera Travel Agency are thrilled to offer you a completely authentic Game of Thrones experience in Croatia, from our selection of multi-day tours.
Dubrovnik: Welcome to King’s Landing
Welcome to the legendary City of Dubrovnik. For most of its history, a republic of its own and a beacon of diplomacy, Dubrovnik’s independent spirit is a strong as ever. You already know this city, for this is King’s Landing, host to the revelries of Robert Baratheon, the excess lifestyle of Prince Joffrey, and the cunning wit of Tyrion Lannister.
Walk onto Red Keep, here known as Lovrijenac Fortress. Follow the trails of Arya Stark, and see where Danaerys, the Queen of Dragons, gave freedom to her fire-breathing flying creatures
The Path to Meereen
Following Danaerys on her path to Meereen, where she seeks revenge upon the vicious slave-owners for crucifying hundreds of slave-children, you will walk through the palace gardens of King’s Landing, where gossip and intrigue foreshadowed battles, a place known in our world as Arboretum Trsteno. This luscious combination of green plant-life and superb architecture of yesteryear tells tails of royalty, and is the oldest arboretum in this part of Europe.
The Walls of Ston, a 3.5 miles long defensive construction dating back to the 14th century, was also part of King’s Landing. Ston is a Dalmatian town you will fall in love with, and as playwright George Bernard Show once said, ‘There is no love sincerer than the love of food’ – an appropriate quote, because Ston is known as the home of one of the rarest, most delicious breed of oysters.
Then the road will take us to the town of Imotski. You’ll travel to a place where fantasy does indeed meet reality, as you’re introduced to the natural wonders of the Red and Blue Lake. Red, like the blood of the fallen, and Blue, like the royal attire of Danaerys, both too deep for your imagination.
Danaerys Finds Comfort on the Islands and the Sea
On her conquest of Slaver’s Bay, as shocked and angered as Danaerys was upon witnessing hundreds of crucified slave-children – the evil doing of the Meereen slave owners – she couldn’t help but pause and take comfort in the magnificent seaside view that was laid in front of her. The Islands and the sea gave her comfort and rest.
Meet the sunniest place in Europe, the lovely Island of Hvar, a favorite destination to those who know how to travel well, and a perfect backdrop to A Game of Thrones. A peaceful retreat or perhaps Slaver’s Bay? The island’s capitol is an ancient town of the same name, rich with history and a thriving art scene.
Hell’s Islands, or ‘Paklenjaci’ is a group of small picturesque islands just outside of Hvar, and a destination easily reachable by speed boat. Many have found peace and seclusion on Hell’s Islands, as they are home to charming taverns and small family hotels. Time moves slowly here.
Moving on with your nautical journey, you will arrive on the Island of Vis – raw, isolated from the mainland, charismatic and beautiful. Your tour of Vis wouldn’t be complete without visiting a tiny nearby island called Biševo. With an official population of fifteen souls, the limestone Island of Biševo is the home of the Blue Cave, one of the most magical places in the Mediterranean. Located in the Balun Bay, the Blue Cave was initially described and painted by Baron Eugen von Ransonet, and until the mid 18th century, was accessible only by diving. Illuminated by both the Sun and the Moon, the inside of the cave glows with an incredible aquamarine light.
The New Throne
Another treat! We welcome you to the New Throne, so to say, the City of Šibenik, whose fortified walls and ancient architecture are yet to be seen in the fifth season of A Game of Thrones. Šibenik is known as The King’s City, for it was the court of Croatian King Krešimir the 4th in the 11th century, and now you’ll witness it fusing with the world of A Game of Thrones. A perpetual stronghold for many rulers, Šibenik is protected by four fortresses on each of its side: the Fortress of St. Nicholas, St. Michael, St. John and the Šubićevac Fortress.
Move away from the city and return to nature, as we welcome you to Krka National Park, the backdrop to numerous nature scenes in the show’s fourth season. It is a breathtaking place, and its cascading waterfalls will leave you mesmerized and refreshed, as you swoon into the greens of its flora and the blues of its crystal clear water.
Now, you’re ready to visit agro tourism Kalpić, in the village Konjevrate, another natural backdrop to the fourth season of the show. These stone houses speak tales of Dalmatian ancestors, while the food and beverages you’ll enjoy speak a tale of hedonistic perfection.
Setting the Slaves Free: Meereen Belongs to the Queen of Dragons
Follow the path of Danaerys as she seeks to conquer Slaver’s Bay and free the slaves of Meereen. The 1700-year-old Mediterranean metropolis of Split transofrms into Meereen, as you start the final chapter of your tour at Diocletian’s Palace, its ancient basements and narrow streets, where freed slaves sought revenge upon their masters.
Travel to the suburbs, to the town of Žrnovnica, whose green mill was used for Missandei’s bathing scene – the perfect spot to rest with a small snack – and then continue to the town’s quarry, where the Unsullied battled for Danaerys, and where Daario fought Bronn.
Finally, walk the path to the top of Klis Fortress, as it transforms into the Meereen throne, where Daenerys set the slaves free and crucified their wicked owners. You will enjoy an authentic Game of Thrones feast under the torchlight, guarded by a dragon and hosted by the Queen of Dragons, Daenerys.
