You can virtually wander about the picturesque landscapes of Westeros, thanks to Google Earth that has added 33 locations where key scenes of the popular fantasy TV series Game of Thrones was filmed.
The crew of the television series travelled across the world to film various scenes, including to a bullring in southern Spain to film the Arena of Meereen and to St. Dominic Street in Croatia, for Cersei Lannister's walk of shame.
Although several of the crucial Kings Landing scenes were shot in Croatia, the crew also travelled to Iceland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Spain for beautiful backdrops, Live Science reported. The show, based on the book series A Song of Fire and Ice by George R R Martin, also utilised green screens and computer-generated imagery (CGI) when needed. Like in the case of the set for the Long Bridge of Volantis, producers chose a Roman bridge in Cordoba, Spain. However, the show used CGI to lengthen the bridge and to put markets and buildings on top of it, according to Google Earth.
Recently, Google has integrated into Google Earth’s storytelling feature, Voyager. The first such story comes to Voyager courtesy of Explore.org, which takes us on a 5-slide-long journey into Katmai National Park to watch bears living out their lives.
