Filming of the popular HBO series Game of Thrones is set to start again in Croatia in December.

After speculation that Game of Thrones would not be returning to film in Croatia, Dubrovacki dnevnik exclusively reports that shooting will resume again in the coastal city of Dubrovnik next month.

Quoting sources from the production crew, the portal reports that filming will start for scenes for season 7 in the middle of December.

Embassy Films Croatia, who are part of the production crew for Game of Thrones in Croatia, announced on its official Facebook page that casting would take place from 28 November – 1 December in Dubrovnik.

They were looking for well-built men, aged older than 20, and between 173 – 188 cm tall, and women over 18 years of age and between 158 – 173 cm tall.


Dubrovnik has been the scene for King’s Landing for a number of seasons, and whilst there was talk that the Game of Thrones’ team would not return, season 7 will be shot in Iceland, Northern Ireland, Spain and Croatia.
