Film Locations in Bulgaria
Finding the perfect and cheap film locations for your next big project has never been easier!
Bulgaria has an incredibly rich and varied domain of natural scenery and man-made sites suitable for filming locations. Cities, towns and villages with busy streets and widely diverse architecture and historic archaeological sites, ranging from epic ancient remains from the Thracian kings (4th century BC) and the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires to the ultra-modern buildings of today.
The richness and diversity of the natural scenery in Bulgaria is truly unique – thick forests and lush green valleys, 39 distinct mountains with varying looks and features from steep and rocky ice-covered summits that resemble the Alps to low-hill wide mountain ranges that look like the Highlands or New Zealand landscapes. Crystal clear rivers and lakes stretch across to the coast of the Black sea, where there are wide beaches covered with golden sands and picturesque cliffs that make breathtaking views.
Bulgaria has a temperate-continental climate, which is characteristic for Central Europe with its moderate features that make all four seasons very distinct – hot and sunny summers, cold and snowy winters, warm and vibrant blossomy springs, rainy and romantic golden-leafed autumns.
All this within a relatively small area of land, in a few hours drive from corner to corner, which makes for convenient and cost-effective logistic solutions.
Bulgaria has also an incredibly rich and varied cinematic history and heritage with more than a 100 years of film-making, that has proven to have brought an excellent quality to cost ratio. Over the past 50 years, the ever-growing industry has created and developed many internationally respected, highly-skilled, experienced and motivated English-speaking professionals, who help create quality productions at competitive rates.
In addition to all this, Bulgaria offers very competitive operational costs, which are on average as much as 30-40% lower than Central Europe, and even lower than any country in Western Europe, the US or Canada. We also have a fixed flat rate income tax of 10%, for all corporate entities, and the local VAT refund is guaranteed.
