The Czech Republic is one of the most sought-after filming locations in Europe. In the past two years alone, almost 60 international film and television projects have been shot in the Czech Republic!

Films Mostly Shot in Prague

Prague has always attracted filmmakers; according to the Czech Film Commission, which supports international productions, Prague can easily replace Paris or London, cities that are much more expensive. But even better news is that Prague has more and more often served as Prague itself in the movies.

The fifth film in the popular vampire series, Underworld: Blood Wars (2016), was mostly made in the Czech Republic. About 70 percent of the film was made in five Barrandov sound stages, and the rest on location around the country. For example, shooting in Prague took place at the Main Train Station; on Spanelska, Vinohradska, Ke Hradu, and Nerudova streets; and on the Prague boardwalk; shoots in Ceske Budejovice took place at the chateau of Hluboka, and in Kutna Hora at St. Barbara’s Cathedral.
The historical drama The Zookeeper’s Wife (2017) needed more than just Prague and its surroundings. Crews transformed Josefov Fortress in JaromerEast Bohemia, into the Warsaw Ghetto, and the square in Zatec, one of the oldest royal towns known for growing hops and brewing beer, represented other parts of Warsaw. The Warsaw Zoo replica was built completely at the Prague Fairgrounds.

TV Series

The British-American historical series Britannia, which has been broadcast on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Amazon Prime Video in the US since January 2018, immediately gained a similar level of interest as Games of Thrones.
