As soon as “Game of Thrones” premiered on HBO back in 2011, it instantly became one of the most popular shows on TV. The series takes place in various fictional locations in the continents of Westeros and Essos, and fans have discovered that many of these places actually exist in real life! If you’ve ever dreamed of taking a trip to these real-life settings, why not take a trip with us instead? We’ll be showing you the real-life King’s Landing, Dorne, the Haunted Forest, and more. This is: 10 Game of Thrones Locations That Exist In Real Life.
One of the most eye-catching scenes in the television show is Daenerys' throne room. It includes a massive staircase and a bench for the powerful woman to sit on. While the stairs were built by the show’s production crew, the actual location is called Diocletian's Palace in the city of Split, Croatia. And above the city of Split is a place called Fortress of Klis. But “Game of Thrones” fans may recognize it as the show's city-state of Meereen.
We’ll also be showing you the monastery that was inspired by the Eyrie, and the actual staircase and surrounding city that the show’s fans know as the Great Sept of Baelor. If that doesn’t excite you, just wait until we show you what the House of the Undying looks like to local residents and tourists. If you’d like to see even more “Game of Thrones” locations that exist in real life, including the caves in The Stormland and Pyke, make sure to watch our video.
