DUBROVNIK


Dubrovnik has everything you would want for a medieval setting, City walls with gates and fortifications, narrow streets and a port. Its little wonder that it has hosted a number of movies and TV series. When I was there you couldn't miss the Game of Thrones merchandising and everywhere you turned reminded me of scenes from the series.
