Fictional setting: Qarth
Located on the south coast of Essos, Qarth is a trading city and is also sometimes known as the “Garden of Bones”.
True location: Trogir
One of many hidden gems in Croatia, Trogir is a UNESCO World Heritage site with strong Venetian influences, as it was taken over in the 15th century for almost 300 years, though it was founded long before that. In the series it portrays the trading harbour of Qarth, while Split and the Fortress of Klis are nearby and well worth a visit, as they were used for many of the scenes featuring the fictional town of Meereen. There are a number of incredible historical sites in Trogir such as the 13th century Cathedral of St Lawrence, as well as some beautiful eateries at which to enjoy dinner, such as Capo in the old town or Konobo Trs. The latter sports traditional wooden benches, old stone walls and a courtyard with a ceiling of sprawling grapevines and serves delicious seafood dishes.
How to visit: There are a number of beautiful superyacht anchorages in Croatia — the nearest is just outside the Trogir bay by the island of Drvenik.
