Welcome to Journeys of Ice and Fire!
It's great to see you here! It's a safe place. Really. Here, have a little bread and salt!
In this blog I will chronicle my travels to all of the filming locations of Game of Thrones. I've just got back from Malta and Gozo, (King's Landing and the Dothraki Sea, among other places) where I had so much fun that I decided to visit all of the real-life locations used on screen.
Next target is Dubrovnik and Split in Croatia.
Westeros has appropriately came alive at the most amazing historical settings of Europe, the Mediterranean and North Africa. We will discover together the overlaps between Westerosi and European history.
Would you like to go on journeys in the Seven Kingdoms and beyond?
These are your journeys as well if
- You happen to love Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire universe

Who is this guy?
I'm Nandor Laklia, a former lawyer turned history tour guide and tour organizer. In the past four years I have been organizing and leading history tours in Europe following the footsteps of the Band of Brothers from Normandy to the Eagle's Nest. This July I visited Malta (King's Landing in season 1) and it got me so inspired that I wanted to visit all of the filming location.
Besides being a huge fan of the novels of George R.R. Martin and Game of Thrones, I'm passionate about fantasy, history and traveling. In this blog I want to share this passion with fellow Throneheads.
I live in Budapest, Hungary. That's one of the reasons for the convoluted sentence structure. You can find out more about me here.
The big plans:
I plan to organize small-group adventure tours and private journeys to all of the filming locations of Game of Thrones. Would you like to come with me to Westeros? Follow the explorations in Croatia in October or join me in Malta in April 2016!
Finally if you are feeling adventurous you can join me in Malta next April!
Yours in Ice and Fire,
