Welcome Back to Westeros!

I know it has been a while since you watched the Game of Thrones Series, (you are probably watching House of the Dragon now) but my wife and I spent a month in Split Croatia and visited quite a few filming locations.


Now let's refresh that memory!

#1 - Daenerys Dragon Room

Location:

Diocletian's Palace Museum

Split, Croatia

The most recognizable room in Split by far. When you walk in you can visualize the dragon scenes right away. The steps down to this scene is tricky to spot, but now that they have added a cross, you can easily visualize the steps where she walks in, which come down from the window above.


Season 5 Episode 1:

Viserion and Rhaegal in the dungeon, angry with Daenerys.


Film Location: 

This film location is incredibly easy to access. It is located in the basement of Diocletian's Palace (Old Town Split), look up for the giant church above the center of town and you will see a dungeon-like basement full of souvenir vendors. At the end of the hall to the right you will see a ticket vendor. If you end up outside and in the Adriatic sea, you have gone too far. Do not leave the dungeon. It is one more floor below you. 


Tickets: 

50 kuna per person (roughly $6.50 USD) 

#2 - Slave Rebellion of Meereen

Location:

 Papalićeva Street in Diocletian's Palace

Split, Croatia

Season 4 Episode 4:

An iconic scene when Grey Worm is leading the charge down the streets of Meereen on a mission to free the slaves. They get one of the slave masters on this street.


Film Location: 

This film location is just a side street in old town. The fastest way is to walk through the Golden Gate and make a left when you see the red banner towards the Split City Museum. There are so many streets used in scenes like this one, just walk around and enjoy what feels like a movie set.


Tickets: 

None

#3 - Sons of the Harpy Ambush the Unsullied

Location:

 Vestibul in Diocletian's Palace

& Diocletian's Palace Museum

Split, Croatia

Season 5 Episode 4:

When Grey Worm discovers dead Unsullied by the hands of the Sons of the Harpy. He goes to fight them and Ser Barristan comes to his rescue. 


Filming Location:

This film location is hard to miss. Right above the dungeon vendor area and basement museum. Instead of going down the stairs to the dungeon, go up the stairs. There is a ticket booth just outside of this room to go up to the top where this photo was taken. 


Most of this scene actually takes place in the basement of Diocletian's Museum as well.


Tickets: 

5 kuna per person (roughly $0.65 USD) to go up. Vestibul is Free to go inside.

"I am Daenerys Stormborn. Your Masters have may have told you lies about me, or they may have told you nothing. It does not matter. I have nothing to say to them. I speak only to you. First, I went to Astapor. Those who were slaves in Astapor, now stand behind me, free. Next I went to Yunkai. Those who were slaves in Yunkai, now stand behind me, free. Now I have come to Meereen. I am not your enemy. Your enemy is beside you. Your enemy steals and murders your children. Your enemy has nothing for you but chains and suffering, and commands. I do not bring you commands. I bring you a choice. And I bring your enemies what they deserve." 


~ Daenerys Targaryen to the Meereen slaves
