Game of Thrones fan recreates shots in actual Croatian shooting locations

Game of Thrones fan Asta Skujytė-Razmienė and her husband kicked their love of Thrones into overdrive this summer when they made a pilgrimage to Croatia to hunt down shooting locations and snap pictures from angles similar to those used on the show. The result is a lot of fun, a Thrones enthusiast adventure come true you can visit in its entirety here.

Below is Asta’s matching photograph of Fort Lovrijenac in Dubrovnik (the Red Keep)

The Thrones location search proved both easy and difficult, as Asta explains in her post on Bored Panda:

If you are a fan of something, sometimes you have to turn on the “hardcore mode”…Some places were really easy to find – Dubrovnik, for example, is just like one huge filming set. But other spots (like streets in Split) we found either after a looong search or just stumbled upon by an accident.

We don’t recommend pretending you’re Cersei and Meryn Trant as you ascend the stairs, though—that can’t lead anywhere good.

Next: a dock outside the wall of Drubrovnik’s Old Town, which stood in for the dock Sansa and Littlefinger conspired in Season 3.

And there’s more where that came from. Yes, Asta—I’m inspired! Great Photographs!
