The enormous attention to detail happens to be one of the coolest aspects from the Game of Thrones universe that captivated the minds of viewers.

Each time a new city was visited in Westeros or abroad, audience members would be subject to a new style of building architecture, different climates, unique styles of clothing and even new languages formulated by the crew behind the show, for example, Dothraki and High Valyrian.

While viewers were treated to an array of breathtaking landscapes and bustling urban environments, there are still a number of mystical locations on the continents of Essos and Sothoryos that are yet to be seen.

However, we have come up with those cities. Hence, let's have a peak at some of the cities that were mentioned in Game of Thrones that many fans will hope to finally see in one of its upcoming spin-offs.


Lorath is a city located on an island off the northern coastline of Essos, it is the least known of the Free Cities and no much idea is known about the city's culture, people, and trade. This is probably because of Lorath being the least powerful of the Free Cities, in addition to being overshadowed by the mighty Braavos which is located extremely close by.


This city is located in the Summer Sea, this island happens to be the home to the Summer Islanders who are culturally distinct from the people of Westeros and Essos. Summer Islanders typically wear colorful clothes consisting of tropical bird feathers.

Because of the nature of their home, in addition to the fact that their land is rich with natural resources, Summer Islanders take part in international shipping extensively, and also owns a large merchant fleet. Meanwhile, both Grey Worm and Salladhor Saan come from these islands.

3.) YI TI:

A city located on the easternmost border of Essos, the Golden Empire of Yi Ti is one of the longest standing and richest civilizations in the known world. Its buildings are known to be grander than anything out of Westeros whereas its princes live in houses of solid gold and eat meat powdered with pearls and jade.

This refined civilization was already considered ancient before the Valyrians assumed a position of power, and it has retained its wealth for more than 6000 years.

Reminiscing on war stories, Ser Barristan Selmy recalled how the first man he killed in battle was a Tyroshi soldier. Meanwhile, it happens that Daario Naharis, leader of the Second Sons who is sworn to Daenerys, is also Tyroshi.

This city is located on one of the Stepstones (small islands) located between the mainland of Essos and Westeros. Its proximity to the Disputed Lands and the ongoing misunderstanding between Lys and Myr works well in its favor economically, as mercenaries are regularly being hired from this city to fight in the war. As well as mercenaries, this city specializes in producing pear brandy.

5.) NAATH:

This city is the birthplace of Missandei, Naath is explained to be an aesthetically beautiful island with tall palm trees, a tropical climate, and many butterflies. In conversation with Grey Worm, Missandei recalled how white the beaches were and how tall the trees looked as she was being taken away after being captured by slavers.

Named “the Peaceful People,” the population of Naath abstain from war and fighting because of worshipping a deity called the “Lord of Harmony.” Their religious beliefs mean that they don't accept harming any living thing, resulting in the islanders being vegetarian.


A city shrouded in mystery, Asshai lies on the far southeast of Essos, with only the Shadow Lands lying beyond the end of the city. The city has a major seaport, and its citizens are globally considered as being exotic. The Asshai'i language is rarely heard in other areas, even in Western Essos, and is rumored to be used in powerful spells.

This use of the language doesn't come as a surprise, however, as the Asshai'i people are known to practice magic. In unison with Asshai's reputation for worshipping the Lord of Light, the Red Priestess Melisandre is known to come from this city. The shadowbinder, Quaith, who Jorah met in Quarth is also Asshai'i.

7.) LYS:

Stretching across several islands off the northwestern coast of mainland Essos, Lys is renowned for its pleasure houses and producing the best-trained prostitutes in the known world. Lys is a long time rival of the city of Myr, because the both cities' attempts to lay claim to the disputed territories.

Lord Varys was born in Lys as a slave, and traveled with a troupe of actors to the different Free Cities in his youth age. Other characters hailing from Lys include notorious pirate Salladhor Saan and Doreah, a former bedslave-turned-handmaiden to Daenerys.
