Jaime trains with Bronn
In Game of Thrones, Jamie Lannister trains with Bronn in two different scenes. They train on a platform down by the sea surrounded by big rocks. This platform is located in Croatia near the City of Dubrovnik. To find the exact filming location read on or click on the map pointer in the image section above.
Jaime Lannister : “Ahh! Bold warrior you are, attacking a man when his guard’s down.”
Bronn : “Best time to attack a man!”
Where did they film the scene where Jaime trains with Bronn?
Bronn trains Jaime to fight with his left hand after he lost his sword hand. Bronn chose a quiet sealed off place by the sea where nobody could see them. The platform on which they trained is located in Trsteno Arboretum in Trsteno, Croatia. The same arboretum vas used as the movie set for quite a few of Game of Thrones scenes in season 3 and 4.
The Trsteno Arboretum is known to be the oldest arboretum in this part of the world dating back to the 15th century. In order to supply fresh water to the Arboretum, the owners build a viaduct to the middle of the park connecting it to the fountain. By 1948 it came under the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts which is taking care of the garden ever since.
Ways to get to the Trsteno Arboretum
If you drive by car, the best way to enter is by following the signs from the main road in Trsteno. You will find some shadowy parking places nearby but there might be too few. In this case, you should find some additional parking spaces further down by the road. There is an entrance fee to the arboretum and the price can variate between 7-8 USD (6-7 EUR).
The botanical garden is connected to the Adriatic Highway and is around 20 min drive away from Dubrovnik by car. But you can also take a bus to Trsteno if you travel from Dubrovnik. Find more info about the departures and the bus tickets HERE.
