The award is part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Association and aims to celebrate the diversity and multifaceted nature of European locations.

'Dubrovnik, Croatia, the Medieval dream of everybody who would like to see himself with a helmet in the head and a sword in his hand fighting for the Seven Kingdoms. This city was loved just by the begin by the Game of Thrones’ producers because it was as eternal as they couldn’t imagine; they thought it was the perfect one to immortalize the legendary King’s Landing in a place where the present mix inevitably with the past on the eternal walls of the old heritage of the Republic of Ragusa,' organizers explain.
