We continue our summer #stayhome series about places ruined by too much tourism. We head to a small city along the Adriatic Sea, known for its starring role in the TV show "Game of Thrones." Dubrovnik, Croatia (aka King’s Landing) is the capital city of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.  Nearly 600,000 tourists came in the first six months of this year, up nearly 25% from last year. The whole town has been transformed.
