“The museum tries to transport you into an eerie realm of the medieval times which inspired the fantasy show,” Luka Galić, the museum owner, told Lonely Planet.

Drogon’s jaws greet visitors into the museum, which includes swords of Valerian steel and a number of life-sized character statues, from Jon Snow to Hodor.

“Walking though the museum’s five themed rooms, the visitors start at Meereen (inspired by Split), move to King’s Landing (inspired by Dubrovnik) and then go north: to Winterfell, Beyond the wall and to Weirwood Tree, where they literally enter the tree. The exhibits range from helmets, to swords, skulls, costumes, city models, set items and the full armour of the King’s Guards,” Lonely Planet describes.
