Croatian Minister of Entrepreneurship and Trades, Gordan Maras, has recently returned from the US where he met with HBO senior executive Jay Roewe HBO, who confirmed that HBO will invest over 8 million euros with local partners over the next two seasons in Croatia.

“It is in Croatia’s interest that they (HBO) continue, especially a series such as Game of Thrones. Our interest is that stay here, that they are happy, and that we treat them very well. They also have other projects for Croatia which they are interested in,” said Maras.

Apart from Dubrovnik, HBO have filmed for the popular series also in the Dalmatian city of Split, Klis, and in Šibenik. HBO’s decision to film in Croatia has given Croatian tourism a real boost. Last year HBO spent around 5.7 million euros on production in Croatia.
