There is no doubt that the arrival of the popular HBO series Game of Thrones in Croatia as a filming location has increased the country’s global image and popularity, and it is an association which looks as though it is sticking, with popular UK tabloid The Daily Mirror naming Croatia as ‘The Home of Game of Thrones’ in a recent article.

Southwards, Makarska, Tucepi and Baska Voda are surrounded by the sharp peaks of the Biokovo Mountains.” Click here to read the full article.
