What Will Dubrovnik Bring to Star Wars Universe?

City of Dubrovnik is a historical city in Croatia, on the banks of the Adriatic Sea. The heart of the city is its historical centre called Old City – a perfectly preserved medieval city, once the seat of Republic of Dubrovnik. So, what does a sci fi production like Star Wars want to shoot here? The answer is yet to be revealed, but for now simply guessing is fun enough.

Dubrovnik’s historical centre, used extensively during the filming of HBO’s Game of Thrones series is marble paved city with narrow steep streets and plenty of gothic, renaissance, and baroque buildings.
