Romania’s spectacular filming locations have attracted many world renowned directors to shoot thousands of commercials and feature films.
Filming in Romania
With a wide range of spectacular filming locations covering all landforms, Romania has been, throughout the years, a top choice for advertising and feature productions.
Bucharest’s historical architecture has a french influence combined with modern skyscrapers as well as buildings from the communist era. The country also offers breathtaking mountainous landscapes, rolling hills, picturesque settlements and landscapes and medieval castles. All of this has helped to attract world-known directors to shoot thousands of commercials and awarded features, such as Cold Mountain, Ghost Rider-Spirit of Vengeance, Django, Wednesday, The Whistleblower, The Brother’s Bloom, Killing Eve and many others.
Romania offers built up infrastructure and top notch experienced working crews that can facilitate any scale of production whilst achieving some of the most competitive prices on the market.
High quality shooting facilities and standing sets in the two main studios situated in Bucharest and access to the latest equipment on the market have helped sustain Romania as a main East European production hub.
Like other countries in south-east Europe, Romania has a temperate continental climate of a transitional type, with very warm summers and cold, snowy winters.
In the capital, Bucharest, summer temperatures regularly reach the mid-30s Celsius, while in winter they drop well below zero.
With significant differences in the climate between different regions of Romania, the average temperatures are 22°C in July and -2 °C in winter months.
