Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Croatia

If you still love Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons, then Diocletian’s Palace is a must visit as well. The palace is home to Daenerys’s throne room and where she locks away her dragons at the end of season 4.

This palace was originally built for the Roman Emperor Diocletian at the beginning of the fourth century AD, and today, forms about half of the old town of Split.
