Game of Thrones was the hit fantasy drama that captured the world’s attention by becoming the biggest show on the planet. It was full of twists and turns because you really couldn’t trust anyone. You couldn’t have a favorite character because they’d either meet an unfortunate end or were just horrible people.
By the end of the show, many of the characters had changed from the ones we first met all those years ago. One thing that pretty much remained consistent though was the amazing scenery throughout all eight seasons of the show. While there might have been plenty of CGI used on the dragons, direwolves, and white walkers, there was plenty of backdrops that didn’t need any help from a computer.
Filming was done all over Europe as the showrunners looked high and low for places to bring Westeros to life. It was a huge success, and the locations used for Game of Thrones were genuinely mind-blowing. These are just some of those amazing places used as shooting locations for the iconic series.
King’s Landing is where the action went down on Game of Thrones, as that was where the Iron Throne was. Power largely always remained in Lannister or Baratheon hands, though there were some who threatened to upset the apple cart.
This is the moment before Cersei was forced to do her walk of shame after she was released by the High Sparrow. It was shot in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where most of King’s Landing was filmed.
