Croatia: Reliving Game of Thrones

Kroatija yra viena iš tų šalių, kuriai labai nuskilo - čia filmuojamas didžiulio populiarumo visame pasaulyje sulaukęs serialas "Game of Thrones" (jei nežinote kas tai per žvėris, tai siūlyčiau nedelsiant šią klaidą ištaisyti!). Su Vincu esame tiek šio serialo, tiek (gal net pirmiausiai) knygų serijos "A Song of Ice and Fire" fanai, tad tiesiog privalėjome apsilankyti tose vietose, kur vyko svarbūs Vesteroso pasaulio įvykiai!

Croatia is quite a lucky country - it is one of the few places in the world where hugely popular series - "Game of Thrones" - is filmed (if you don't know what that is, I suggest to google it as soon as possible!). Vincas and I, we are huge fans both of the series and (first of all) books, so it was obligatory for us to visit those places, where important things of the Vesteros world had happened.
