Game of Thrones-Inspired Destinations

If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones (GOT), all you need to do is take a look at a map of Europe and choose one or more countries to visit. Be sure to know the exchange rate of euro to the dollar at the time you plan your trip so you can budget accordingly.

Jesuit Stairs

Dubrovnik, Croatia

If you were fascinated by Kings Landing, The Red Keep, and the House of Undying, then plan your getaway to the seaside castle town of Dubrovnik, Croatia. This country in central Europe offers an old-world feel, fascinating historical architecture, and more. GOT related sites to see include:


Mussenden Temple

Castlerock, Northern Ireland

Explore the scenery presented as Westeros by making your way to the seaside village of Castlerock, Northern Ireland. Walk along the sandy beaches and cliffs, visit the Mussenden Temple, and more. Also, consider making a trip to Ballintoy Bay, which served as the port of the Iron Islands to which Theon Greyjoy returned. Millions of tourists visit Northern Ireland in 2023, many of them inspired by the GOT series just like you.


Doune Castle

Doune Castle, Scotland

If Winterfell, home to the Starks, captivated you in that pilot episode of Game of Thrones, then head to central Scotland. Located within about an hour from either Glasgow or Edinburgh, the Doune Castle is a must-see. Thousands of tourists visit this 14th-century castle every year.


Money Heist-Inspired Destination

Madrid, Spain

Head to Madrid, Spain to experience the locations and scenery found in Money Heist. Sites to see include the Royal Mint, the Plaza del Callao, Paseo de la Castellana, and the Spanish Bank (actually the Ministry of Public Works and Transport). You can also venture outside the city to San Frutos Hermitage, which is the monastery where the main character, Berlin, lives. Madrid is a popular destination for visitors, so you can expect crowds year-round here.


In Bruges-Inspired Destination

Minnewater Bridge

Bruges, Belgium

As one of the most popular cities in Belgium, Bruges has a lot to offer fans and others alike. The majority of the locations where filming took place are easily accessible and you’ll be able to capture spectacular photos. Be sure to make a stop at the tourism office once in town and ask for the map that shows all the film’s locations. These include such sites as the Minnewater Bridge (The Lake of Love bridge), and the Groening Museum (art museum).


Mean Girls (2004 version) Inspired Destination
