Also, Poland has been long well-known for its variety of landscapes that catch many eyes of big-named producers. Here are some that we found interesting and would match any genre of film production.
Warsaw is located in the east-central of Poland, consisting of both modern towns and old towns around the city. However, for most productions that aim to bring their productions to Warsaw, they would pick the old town neighborhoods for their film productions. One of the 3 Oscar Winners “The Pianist” by French-Polish director Roman Polanski was shot here in Warsaw.
Wroclaw is a historical city located in the southwestern part of Poland and it’s also a university city, making it one of the most youth-oriented cities in the country. A historical drama film “Bridge of Spies” by Steven Spielberg was filmed here in the city in replacement of the German capital.
Krakow is the second-largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. It is cited as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, its Old Town with Wawel Royal Castle was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978. Krakow has been home to many blockbuster-tier productions such as “Schindler’s List”, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and the Netflix series “The Witcher.”
Gdansk is Poland’s principal seaport city located on the Baltic coast of northern Poland. For any film that requires a cityscape by the sea, Gdansk would be a perfect place to bring your production to. “Zero Dark Thirty” used this city as the site for a C.I.A. black ops facility in the film.
Not far from the city of Krakow, lay this Ogrodzieniec Castle. A ruined medieval castle located on the highest hill of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland. This particular location has appeared in the Netflix series, “The Witcher.”
