GAME OF THRONES IN ZAGREB
Dubrovnik, one of the most beautiful place in the world, has become a more popular tourist destination year after year. The number of tourists has been increasing, and one of the reasons is that our global top model, famous for its luscious curves and antiquities (something that makes us quite similar), has become very attractive to producers of mega-popular TV shows and films (no similarities there)… so they use the city walls as scenography. Which, naturally, attracts fans from all over the world. Which true fan wouldn’t want to take a walk around King’s Landing of be part of the Star Wars’ force (awakening)? As much as some citizens of Dubrovnik may like it (or not), is it too high of a price to pay for diminishing the cultural spirit of the town, as they say, or an amazing project that will bring a lot of money to everyone (if only we had more of those!)? We’ll leave the guesswork to the so-called serious media and analysts from social networks.
I’m just an ordinary fan girl (with the emphasis on girl) of Game of Thrones and Dubrovnik, unbothered by such big thoughts. I’ve spent summers and summers strolling around the Dubrovnik city walls (so we have that covered) and I’m totally overjoyed by ordinary female thrills. Such as the fact that I learned recently and which was simple enough for me to formulate to my better half as a Valentine’s Day, Women’s Day, birthday, anniversary, Mother’s Day, You Name It Day gift :-).
Jewelry used in the shooting of the show! And not in Dubrovnik – in my own city, in Zagreb! And it’s Croatian traditional jewelry created at Jozef Gjoni Jewelry! Two, that is, three birds with one stone: Croatian traditional jewelry + Game of Thrones + in my hometown! Trust me, no better half would object to this! No games here – you know who holds the throne :-)!
