Although a veil of secrecy has been surrounding the upcoming filming of the HBO blockbuster serial “Game of Thrones” in Dubrovnik snippets of information are slowly leaking out. One of the locations is in the process of being constructed in the suburbs of Dubrovnik in Župa. The chosen location is the site of the future cemetery “Dubac” on cliffs over the Adriatic Sea. The set is currently in the construction process and is under constant protection by a team of security guards.
Other possible locations include sites on the city walls, the island of Lokrum and a few of the palaces in the historic old city. All information regarding the actual shooting and the arrival of the actors are being kept confidential, however it is believed that shooting will begin in mid November. All local extras hired to perform will have to sign a letter of confidentiality to protect any further details coming out before the second series is shown in the spring. The majority of the costumes to be used, both by the extras and the main actors, have already arrived in the city and are in guarded storage in Dubrovnik.
