Whiling away evenings, watching the favourite television shows, one can probably dream to walk among the heroes. This New Year eve, MAPS.ME team has created routes to three filming locations that have been featured in various television shows. No matter where you plan to spend your holidays, you can always travel to any of these locations using the MAPS.ME app, which is free and works offline.

1) Game of Thrones: Dubrovnik (Croatia)

Game of Thrones is full of astonishing locations, as it was shot all around the world. The crew has also visited Dubrovnik, one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean region, located in the heart of Croatia.

Trsteno Arboretum

Gučetić Gozze villa, an incredibly beautiful place, is located in a small Croatian village. It is just a few minutes away from the city of Dubrovnik. One can walk through the lanes of the villa, and will be able to hear Tyrion and Varys discussing their evil plans right there. The famous Arboretum appeared several centuries ago, thanks to efforts of owners. There is an exquisite fountain, a small chapel, oil farm, and a gazebo on a cliff, which offers stunning views of the sea.

Address: Potok 20, Magistrala Trsteno

Lovrjenac Fortress

At this location, the Battle of the Blackwater was shot for the television show. You can only anticipate the true scale of this monument when you are surrounded by the walls of the fortress. For several centuries, the triangular fort on the cliff protected Dubrovnik from the sea. However, those days are gone, and now the walls of the fortress are witnessed by the tourists.

Address: Skalini Marka Foteza

Gradac Park

In Gradac, Geoffrey and Margery were married. It’s better to come here early in the morning or late at night, climb the ancient stone steps and enjoy fantastic sunrises or sunsets and views of the old town. If you are one of those who enjoy being alone, then boldly make your way to the far side of the park.

Address: Rudimira Rotera

2) Sherlock: London, United Kingdom

This television show depicts the intricacies of modern London and it makes you want to go on a trip to London right away. It’s very easy to feel Sherlock’s atmosphere around you– you just need to visit the following places.

Speedy’s Cafe

In this café you’ll get special menu for Sherlock’s fans, moreover, all walls are decorated by footages from the TV show. Speedy’s Café is an ideal place to run for an hour and order a cup of tea and cake.

Address: North Gower Street, 187

Southbank Skatepark

The colorful Southbank Skatepark is surprisingly located in the underpass of the Queen Elizabeth Hall. It is one of the must-visit locations, even if you cannot show everybody few tricks on a skateboard. The location is a great place for unwinding, one will surely bump into a graffiti artist or some interesting people. If you are a true Sherlock fan, you need to come here at night.

Address: Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank side

Russell Square

This small park will help you to hide from the hustle and bustle of the busy city– it’s an ideal place to relax and recollect your thoughts if they are wandering. The area is filled with various remarkable landmarks, including the stately Russell Hotel, which hosts one of the most famous restaurants – the same as in the Titanic movie (however, this information is not about Sherlock).

Address: Russell Square

3) Sex and the City: New York City, United States of America

Every girl has dreamed to become the fifth friend in the company of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha. If you are going to New York, then don’t miss the opportunity to visit the famous locations that have been showcased on the television show.

The Loeb Boathouse Restaurant in the Central Park

There are many interesting places in New York’s Central Park, but Sex and the City fans need to check the small pond, the same spot where Carrie and Mr. Big took a plunge. You’d rather visit a restaurant nearby, than try to plunge in the same manner (especially in a winter).

Address: East 72nd Street and 5th Avenue

Trapeze School New York

While walking around New York, if you realise that you are missing a thrill, then head straight to the school of trapeze. Carrie was here, terribly scared but firmed up on one of the most important decisions of her life. Perhaps, you might experience a similar situation and you’ll learn a pair of acrobatic stunts in the arsenal.

Address: Hudson River Park, West Street

Il Cantinori Restaurant

In this restaurant, Carrie was planning to celebrate her birthday, but all her friends were late. You don’t need to delve into melancholy (like Carrie did) but do try out the exotic delicacies that are available there (fresh asparagus and tomatoes are available in any season).

Address: East 10th Street and University Place

Carrie Bradshaw’s flat

Of course, you can’t visit Carrie’s flat, but you can take a picture of the famous porch.

Address: 66 and 68 Perry Street
