SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2015 – Among the many reasons the HBO series “Game of Thrones” has become such a smashing success is its stunning recreations of the worlds described in the original series of novels “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin.
The series has traveled on location to Northern Ireland, Croatia, Iceland, Morocco, Spain, Malta, Scotland, and the United States, and filmed in a Belfast studio.
In Season 5, two brand new locations are introduced: the kingdom of Dorne, the southernmost region of Westeros with hot, dry weather and its only desert; and the island nation of Braavos, the greatest and most powerful of the “Free Cities,” where all gods are honored.
The Spanish government grant “Game of Thrones” production crews access to Spain’s historic buildings and gardens to create the nation of Dorne. The House of Black and White in Braavos was brought to life in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
In this video, production staff and actors from the series discuss the logistics and achievements creating Dorne and Braavos for viewers. See the results this week in Episode 6.
