Daenerys Targaryen


Where did they film the meeting scene between Daenerys and the king of spices?

The estate with the beautiful courtyard and the stone stairs is located in Dubrovnik, Croatia. It is the Courtyard of the Rector’s Palace near the old dock and the cathedral of Dubrovnik.


The Rector’s Palace dates back as far as the 14th century. It was often rebuilt and renovated so it has a Gothic style mixed with Renaissance and Baroque elements. Between the 14th century and 1808, the building served as the seat for the Rector of the Republic of Ragusa.


Today, the palace houses the historical department of the Dubrovnik Museum. There are beautiful exhibitions like the one about antique furniture. The entrance fee is at 130 Kuna a little high, but you can visit 6 museums in Dubrovnik with the same ticket. Here you will find more info about entrance fees and other museums: Dubrovnik Museums


If you only want to visit the courtyard you can take a glimpse through the front door. If you really want to explore the location and take good pictures, however, you will need to pay an entrance ticket. - Dubrovnik
