Home to a Roman Emperor and Queen of Meereen

Diocletian’s Palace is known for royal history; in the 4th century, the site of Ethnographic Museum itself served as the personal chambers of the Emperor Diocletian. However, fans of fiction may also recognise Diocletian’s Palace as a filming location in HBO’sGame of Thrones. Visitors can descend into the basement cellars to see where the Mother of Dragons ruled over Meereen and kept her children in captivity, with some tours including entry in the price.
