You already know how iconic movie logos came about from the Paramount Pictures to Columbia Pictures, Pixar Animated Studios, Warner Bros, MGM, Walt Disney, DreamWorks and many more. It should not end there. If you are really a movie enthusiast, things will be more remarkable if you visited at least one real-life TV location.
If you are fully immersed in a show or movie, you have dreams of going to that one place and feel the grass beneath your feet or the breeze brushing against your cheek even the taste of the food. Start with these real-life TV locations from your favorite shows:
- Greece: There is an appeal when you see Korean shows. The latest craze is Descendants of the Sun. The fictional nation of Uruk where you see Doctor Kang Mo-Yeon and Captain Yoo Si-Jin work together to improve the lives of the people around. The real-life location of Uruk is in Athens. The attractions in these places played a huge part in the development of the romance of the two people.
Most scenes of the drama are of a town in Athens called Delphi. The best part is that because of the popularity of the show, there are many tours that feature key locations that appeared in the drama. It promises two things – Greek history and Korean pop culture. What more can you ask?
- Ireland: Another show that is watched by many is Game of Thrones. One cannot help but get hooked because of the characters, the plot and of course the settings. One setting is the Kingsroad which is considered the longest and the most dangerous highways. Its real-life location is Bregagh Road’s Dark Hedges in County Antrim nestled in Northern Ireland. The road looks gothic but it is peaceful.
- England: If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan, you should never miss seeing their real-life apartment location where everything started. Holmes’ and Dr. Watson’s iconic apartment is just above the Speedy’s Sandwich Bar and Café in 187 North Gower Street, London. What’s remarkable about this place is you can eat at the eatery plus you get to buy some souvenirs.
- United States: Another popular TV show is United States’ The Walking Dead. Remember the rural town called Woodbury that fortified itself against “walkers” which is run by Governor? It is actually in Senoia, a town in Georgia, United States. Though it is a bit different without the steel gates surrounding it but once you walked down the Main Street, it will feel like you are at the center of the show.
