Once again Game of Thrones and Star Wars have brought international recognition and publicity to Dubrovnik. One of the largest TV networks in the Philippines, GMA Network, is currently filming a show about Dubrovnik’s role as the location for these two mega productions.
GMA Network was founded in 1950 as a radio station and moved into television in 1961. The TV network is extremely popular in the Philippines and the combination of Dubrovnik and Game of Thrones and Star Wars should mean that more tourists from the region will visit in the future.
The show had wanted to film Star Wars cosplay characters in Dubrovnik, such as Darth Vader and Storm troopers, to add to the overall image. The locations of these two popular productions will feature as well as the landmarks of the city.
