Pile Harbour

Pile Harbour, Dubrovnik

Fans of Game of Thrones will be familiar of these harbour views from Kings Landing. Pile Harbour (pronounced Pee-leh) is the smaller brother of the main port of Dubrovnik, and is only suitable for smaller ‘fun’ boats. It’s surrounded by charismatic forts and rocks, so it’s much better for the telly.

I’d show you a photo of the pebble beach and harbour wall there too, which is where the Lannister aristocracy do their waving and greeting, but it’s covered in unsightly canoes, life-jackets and people with much better tans than me.

Again, it’s amazing what a bit of CGI can do. The fort at the back of the photo below, always has a bit added to the top. If you try really hard, you can almost imagine Stannis Baratheon’s fleet being decimated by Tyrion Lannister’s wildfire bombs at the Battle of Blackwater Bay.
