Game of Thrones Season 5 Filming: New and Old Locations Revealed!
Game of Thrones Season 4 may have just ended a few weeks ago, but it’s already almost time for filming to commence for Season 5! The multi-national production is constantly securing filming locations for the new season in both familiar and unfamiliar territory, so here’s our rundown of where they’ll be heading to in the coming months.
Iceland. The area familiar to us for its representation of the lands beyond the Wall will once again be utilized in Season 5, but only briefly. Winter Is Coming reports that no actors will make the trek to Iceland; only landscape shots will be filmed there. Originally, there was to be a large battle filmed in the country, but rewrites have taken it out of production for this year. Maybe next season?
Croatia. The long-time favorite filming location of the show will once again make an appearance in Season 5, with the iconic red-roofed city of Dubrovnik again standing in for King’s Landing. However, a new city will also be getting screen time. The city of Sibenik, which has several fortresses as well as a medieval “Old Town” area, will reportedly serve as a setting for Season 5 as well. There is a city called Old Town in the GoT universe, might this be an example of life imitating art?
Spain. Perhaps the most exciting new destination is Spain, since all signs point to the Mediterranean country representing Dorne in the new season. The cities of Seville and Osuna are said to be the main areas of focus, with reps from the show visiting a bull ring and the palace of Alcazar, among other structures. Check out these pics from Winter Is Coming of all the locations rumored to make it on camera next season.
