Malta is a famous the Game of Thrones film destination that was Kings Landing before Dubrovnik was discovered by the film crew. It’s also famous for the Azure window, a beautiful natural arch that looked out over the Inland Sea of Gozo. Or should I say it was famous, as the Azure window is no more!

Azure Window, Game of Thrones Film Location Malta
The Azure Window of Gozo was used as the film set for the Dothraki wedding of Drogo and Daenerys. Daenaerys was given two presents – the first was a collection of books from the Seven Kingdoms and the second was three petrified dragon eggs, which would later result in her becoming the Dragon Queen. And, of course, that night, we all felt sorry for Daenerys, as it ain’t a wedding without a bedding!
The Collapse of the Azure Window, Malta
Sadly, the Azure window recently collapsed in March 2017, leaving not even a hint of the beautiful natural arch that previously existed – you wouldn’t even know that it had been there. The cause of the collapse was severe weather conditions. Very sad, but it seems that we have to say goodbye to a popular and beautiful Game of Thrones filming destination forever. Gutted that I missed this one!
