The largest of the Adriatic islands and well-populated, Krk has grown to be more than the vibrant Venetian style buildings along the coast. The bustling vibes and laid-back beaches coupled with scrumptious food are enough to convince the visitors.

The benefits of working from a small town while enjoying the luxuries it offers at reasonable cost apply to Krk, an addition being excellent beach destinations close by.

King’s Landing is the capital of the fictional seven kingdoms. A coastal city with astounding views, this place is the power house, which witnesses many events including King Joffrey’s name day tournament.

King’s Landing is the city of Dubrovnik in Croatia. Known as ‘the pearl of the Adriatic,’ the old walled city area overlooking the spectacular Dalmatian coast has been a perfect place for the drama to unfold.

The Black Water Bay, which is shown from the top of the walls of the King’s Landing can be viewed by taking a tour in the old walled city of Dubrovnik. Most of the areas in the walled city can be traced to the scenes that were shot and can be photographed too.

It takes about 3 to 4 hours to stroll along the streets of the old city, including climbing the stairs for a bird view of the Bay.

2 | Lovrijenac Fortress

Game of Thrones Locations in Croatia

Located on a rock at 37 meters high, Lovrijenac Fortress commands the attention of the travelers automatically as soon as they step into the old walls of Dubrovnik.

The tournament on Joffrey’s name day ceremony and a few scenes including the one with Cersei and the other Lannisters have been filmed at this fortress.

Climbing the steps would lead you to witness a stunning view of Dubrovnik’s skyline overlooking the Adriatic sea.

3 | St Dominika Street

Game of thrones location in Croatia

Passing through the Ploce gate leading to the main street of Stradun, you will see a labyrinth of lanes flanked by stone houses. This is the famed St Dominika Street, where many scenes of Game of Thrones including the one where the sparrows preach the civilians of King’s Landing have been filmed.

The streets are perfect to stroll around after a climb to the top of the Bokar and Lovrijenac fortresses.

Little ahead of this street lies the popular Jesuit staircase, the venue where the public shaming of Cersei takes place. It feels mesmerizing to see how well the Great Sept of Baelor, which is beautifully designed using the CGI technology in the show fits right in front of this staircase.

4 | Mineeta Tower


Remember the scene where the Khaleesi visits the House of the Undying on her quest to find her dragons? Well, the tall tower surrounded by the cobbled lanes is the tower of Mineeta, from where the King’s Landing is visible! You can visit the exact passage where the scenes were filmed along with watching the bird view of the Adriatic coast line in Dubrovnik.

5 | Lokrum Island

Qarth, the city where Daenerys meets the spice king at his palace is located 600 meters from the main city of Dubrovnik at Lokrum Island. This island dates back to 1023 and thus looks as fascinating as it is showcased in the show, where you get to see the vibrant coastline of Dubrovnik on the horizon.

6 | Trsteno Arboretum

The beautiful palace gardens that can be seen from Red Keep in King’s Landing in the episodes where Sansa and Lady Olenna Tyrell takes place, and also the conversations between Sansa and Margaery occur are the sprawling gardens of Trsteno Arboretum, located away from the main city of Dubrovnik.

Built in the 15th century, this garden has been home to some of the world’s ancient species of trees. It is also the oldest arboretum in this part of Europe.

Don’t worry about food or drinks while you plan to explore all day in Dubrovnik. The city has many excellent restaurants, cafes, and bar, some of them in the old city with beautiful views of the skyline.

If you wish to try some delicious steaks or just want to dine with the views of the old harbour, you could visit Gusta Me. And Culture Club Revelin is a great place for some night life that goes on until early morning when there are concerts or performances.

If you wish to locate the throne room of Queen Daenerys, the mother of Dragons and the place where she trains her beasts in the basement, head straight to Diocletian’s Palace in the city of Split.

15 Hidden Gems in Croatia

hidden gems in croatia

Here at GoGo Places we like to think that we know a little bit about Croatia as it’s the country we are opening up first to visitors around the world. That puts us in the right place not just to talk about the quality of life, the beautiful beaches and the incredible people of this European nation but also about the amazing places that most visitors never see.

We’d like to share our 15 favourite hidden gems in Croatia and we hope that you’ll join us soon to appreciate them in person.

1. Stiniva Bay

You can only get to Stiniva Bay by boat and it’s really worth your effort to do so.  There is splendid beachfront isolation combined with clear waters and dramatic rock cliffs. It’s the sort of paradise on earth that you never forget.

2. Pupnatska Beach

This is the perfect place to get your diving gear on and check out the local marine life. The water is always relatively still and utterly transparent, and did we mention that the location is also absolutely stunning? You need to see it, to believe it.

3. Lastovo island

Croatia’s second most distant island, Lastovo, remains at the edge of the world. Beyond Ubli, where car ferries dock daily from Split (five hours, via Korcula), modernity seems a rumour. Wifi? Even the phone signal is sketchy. Yet Lastovo is more than an island to remember how to relax.

Washed by the cleanest seas in the Mediterranean, it offers good diving (find out more at www.lastovo-diving-ankora.com) and walks on a wild island wholly designated a nature park.

4. Gdinj, Hvar Island

Gidinj is a lovely village near Hvar in Croatia. Hvar is the capital of the island which bears its name. The area is highly picturesque and has more than a century of experience of dealing with visitors looking to get away from it all. The beaches are very attractive and rarely busy.

Hvar; CroatiaReference: http://www.goholidaylets.com/Croatia/1556

5. Dugi Otok (Croatia’s Long Island)

Dugi Otok is the seventh largest island in the Adriatic and the right place to get away for a relaxing break. You’re also on the doorstep of the Kornati Islands National Park from here. You will find some great hiking in the neighbourhood when you want to get away from the beach.

6. Sakarun Beach

You’ll need to hurry because Sakuran Beach is starting to leak out into the mainstream radar and when it does – it will no longer be the best place to take a family for a weekend’s swimming and sandcastle building, but until then, it is.

7. Lovrecina

There are very few sights in life as breathtaking as the first glimpse that you get of Lovrečina. It’s a jaw dropping spectacle that near demands that you go and pay your respects by lounging on the beach and swimming in the still blue waters.

LovecinaReference: http://www.beach-backgrounds.com/the-wallpaper-of-beautiful-lovrecina-beach-in-croatia

8. Bobovista

Bobovista is a sleepy town which promises and delivers a safe haven away from home. The local restaurants are famed for their fresh catch and nothing beats walking hand in hand along the harbour front on a romantic evening.

9. Postira

Please keep this one under the radar; it’s too peaceful to benefit from huge crowds of visitors but it can be our perfect secret. Postira was made for chilling out in. You may find that the only downside of visiting Postira is that it’s very hard to move on when your time there runs out, it’s just too nice.

10. Badija Island 

This island is home to a monastery but don’t let that put you off lying on the beach and soaking up the sun. It’s a fantastic getaway destination and the monks won’t mind you enjoying the island as much as they do.

11. Galesnjak

The “island of love” is one of the most romantic spots in Croatia and while there are beautiful beaches there’s also plenty of wild, untamed nature to be found here.

12. Vrulje

You may not associate Croatia with desert islands but strangely Vrulje is pretty close to it. It’s an incredible place in the Kornati Islands which captures every travellers’ heart.

VruljeReference: http://www.vrulje-kornati.com/vruljeDE.html

13. Komiza Town

Komiza is well-known and well-loved for its wine making prowess and this sleeping fishing town has far more to it than meets the eye. We recommend that you check out the Blue Grotto and try some of the local honey for which the area is also famous.

14. Pomena Beach

Don’t tell anyone about Pomena Beach, it’s our favourite unspoiled spot in Croatia. Check it out and you’ll find crystal blue seas surrounded by the green of nature. It’s not to be missed.

15. Zaklopatica Bay

It’s great to get up high above the bay and see this wonderful natural inlet from the sea and its shore front. There are almost no crowds to be found in this area and you can enjoy a superbly peaceful time in Zkalopatica Bay.

10 Undervalued Up and Coming Digital Nomad Locations for 2017

Digital nomadism is here to stay but where should an aspiring or established nomad go to get the best bang for their buck and still keep things interesting? Chiang Mai and Ubud are over and that’s a good thing – there’s a whole wide world to see before you hang up your laptop. Let’s check out the 10 Undervalued Up and Coming Digital Nomad Locations for 2017.

Asia being the hub of digital nomads in the world, it’s no surprise that half of the places that we recommend are from there. Check them out now!

5 Digital Nomad Locations in Asia

Half of the list goes to Asian destinations and that’s because they’re often the least expensive. It’s worth noting that this may come at the compromise of quality of life compared to many other places.

Udon Thani, Thailand

What’s so great about Chiang Mai, anyway? Thailand’s not some backwater dump; it’s a big modern country. Udon Thani has a ton of advantages over Chiang Mai:

It’s closer to Laos so border runs for visas are easier;

The accommodation costs are much lower and you can get a swish pad in the city center for half the price of a condo on Nimman;

It has a ton of great nightlife and it’s on the doorstep of one of Thailand’s UNESCO world heritage sites.

Udan Thani

Battambang, Cambodia

Cambodia has surprisingly good internet even if it is a little bit pricier than the rest of the region. Battambang, however, is the perfect place for nomads who need to get work done:

It’s the cheapest city in Cambodia for rents;

The city itself has some of the finest French colonial architecture in Asia;

Beer, food, and transport are among the lowest cost in the world;

Visas and work permits are insanely easy to obtain and renew.

Mandalay, Myanmar

Those looking for perfect, always on and high-speed internet shouldn’t consider Mandalay for a few years yet. Those with a little more freedom to choose, however, should consider:

The city has much lower rental costs than in Yangon;

It’s in the heart of some of the most unspoiled territory in Asia;

Myanmar has only recently opened up and you’ll be among the first long-term visitors to Mandalay which means getting the “real vibe” before it’s overrun by tourists.

Kochi, Kerala, India

Goa is so last year and it’s lost much of its appeal as both a tourist and digital nomad destination. Kochi in Kerala is the rising star to take its place:

Still very much untouched by nomads but a major city all the same with all the amenities that brings;

Not far from the beach and the province itself offers a ton of temples, mountains and other places of interest to explore;

It’s always warm without ever getting to the point of unbearably hot.

Zhuhai, China

Zhuhai is an up and coming city on China’s Southern Coast. It offers easy access to the comforts of Macau without the prices of Macau:

Fantastic internet availability and a wealth of cheap places to work from;

A chance to see the Chinese boom take place around you;

A vibrant expat community to make up for the lack of nomads there at the moment.

5 Digital Nomad Locations in the Rest of the World

It’s fair to say these are likely to be a little more expensive than the Asian destinations but, at the same time, they do offer a higher overall quality of life.

Katerini, Greece

Greece is more expensive than you might think but Katerini bucks the trend and has the lowest cost of living of any town in the country and there’s a lot to be said for the place:

It’s only 6 km from the beach and there are a lot of beaches to choose from;

It’s surrounded by places of historical interest such as the ancient city of Dion;

There are great transport links to the rest of Greece;

Thessaloniki nearby is a UNESCO world heritage site.

Slavonski Brod, Croatia

The name doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue but this small student city is low cost and surprisingly good value too:

Pleasant year round temperature and an easily walkable city;

Weekends are when the students come out to party and the weeks are pleasantly relaxed;

There’s a ton of cafes, clubs, shops, and galleries and the internet are great too (check out our previous blog regarding co-working spaces).

When visiting Croatia your first point of call should be GoGo Places. Check out our list of homes – all affordable and competitive prices too.

Santa Marta, Colombia

It’s Medellin that’s getting all the attention at the moment but Santa Marta is cheaper and it’s got great beach access. The Internet may be a bit patchy though:

Some of the best scuba diving in South America and the jet skiing is good too;

Get in touch with the life (and death) of Simon Bolivar one of the most significant figures in South American history;

It’s a  great place to learn Spanish cheaply and the bars and restaurants are great.

Lipari Island (one of the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily)

Lipari is the largest, busiest and most accessible of the Aeolian Islands. Visitors arriving from the mainland will likely experience it as a relaxing introduction to island life.

The town is so quaint and picturesque – even the tiny little cobblestone streets leading directly to the sea looks like it was plucked directly out of a children’s storybook.

A busy little port with a pretty, pastel-colored seafront and plenty of accommodation, it makes the most convenient base for island hopping.

It is cheap and cheerful;

Easy public transport options available

Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town remains Southern Africa’s most popular destination and for good reason. It’s low cost and the only place in Africa with reliable and high speed Internet:

Good and cheap transport (which you will need as Cape Town is a big city);

Museums, botanical gardens, beach access, and nearby safaris;

Great nightlife, co-working spaces and endless things to do.

Summary

If you want to get off the beaten path and hit up a nomad destination which offers great value for money and a wealth of things to see and do, why not check out one of these 10 locations?

They make a pleasant change from the clichés of Chiang Mai, Prague, Ubud, etc. and will give you a chance to develop your identity as a digital nomad without breaking the bank.

With few distractions, you’ll have all the focus you’ll need to hammer away at your projects during the days you’ll spend at Cowork Osijek.
