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 an integral part of its vivid storyline. No wonder Croatia was chosen as a crucial filming location for the fourth season of the show, since its 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 our New Year's vacation package.
29.12. - Arrival
Pick up and transfer to accommodation.
30.12. - Šibenik, Krka National Park, Trogir, Kaštela
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.
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.
Trogir, the city with 2300 years of tradition. In first century Trogir became Roman municipality ‘Tragurium’, and joined to Salona, center of Roman province of Dalmatia. It has beautiful Romanesque churches which are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period, and in 1997 UNESCO acknowledged Trogir as a World cultural Heritage.
The free City of Braavos, in reality the small town of Kaštel Gomilica. In series, Braavos was known as a city of waterways, with many islands, canals and lagoons, so that atmosphere was easily captured here in Croatia.
31.12. - Split, Klis, Žrnovnica
Start the tour at Diocletian’s Palace in the very heart of Split, built in the glory of Ancient Rome and feel the blood of the dragon pulse through your veins. The Roman palace was constructed by Emperor Diocletian, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site and has been a high point for world travelers for well over a thousand years, sparking the imagination of its natives, conquerors and guests – much like the cast of Game of Thrones and their crew. Daenerys fought the slave-owner overlords the Mereen and Yunkai with her faithful Unsullied within these very walls, only to return to Westeros as the victorious queen.
Klis Fortress, an ancient stronghold built upon stone cliffs atop of the City of Split, a structure that has been the epicenter to some of Croatia’s most legendary struggles throughout history. In recent years, Klis Fortress has found a new role: as the perfect filming location for Danaerys’s stronghold. Once you are there, looking down upon the scenery from the top of the hill, you will feel the sheer power of the mighty Targaryens.
At the end of our tour you will travel to the suburban town of Žrnovnica, once the home to a great number of grain mills, many of which have disappeared since medieval times, but those that survived the test of time have been meticulously restored and are a sight to behold. You will recognize this area as the place where Daenerys’s trusted handmaid and interpreter Missandei had her bathing scene. Žrnovnica is also a quarry and served as a real-world backdrop for an intense battle in the fourth season of Game of Thrones.
At the Žrnovnica mill we will organise the unique New Year's Eve program which you will never forget!
