15 Cities You Should Travel To While Waiting For "Game Of Thrones" To Return


I happen to be a major "Game Of Thrones" geek. So like most of my fellow "GOT" fanatics, I've often daydreamed about living in the whimsical world of Westeros.

Unfortunately, there's no such thing as ancient cities filled with fire-breathing dragons and faceless men in the real world.

However, that doesn't necessarily mean you have to give up on your dreams of experiencing the Seven Kingdoms first hand.

Yep, while George R.R. Martin's creatures and characters may be fictitious, a lot of the places where HBO brings these stories to life are real locations that you can actually visit.

From cities in Croatia that look like a carbon copy of King's Landing and lush Spanish gardens that double as the palace of Dorne to old Scottish castles that serve as the Stark's Winterfell home, there are all sorts of "Game Of Thrones" filming locations across the globe.

So we set out to find a bunch of "GOT" travel destinations that will cure your Westeros wanderlust once and for all.
