Bulgaria has a rich historical, cultural and natural background which makes it one of the most desirable film-making destinations over the past few years.
Bulgaria's territory has been inhabited since the earliest historical times. Various civilizations have left their mark and heritage on the local lands.
Here you can stumble upon anything from mountains to beautiful coasts, to rapidly growing cities or ancient ruins. With rates beyond comparison and an experienced staff, film-making in Bulgaria remains a prudent choice.
The Balkan is near the same latitude as Northern California, boasting serene mountains and forests, lakes and rivers which can easily replicate the Sierras, the Cascades, the Rockies, or the Appalachians.
The Pirin and Rhodope Mountain ranges can easily play as the High Sierras, Colorado, or the Alps.
Bulgaria also has a rich history that is seen in many monasteries, castles and Roman ruins. Various cities can double for many European Cities while the capital, Sofia, with its many modern, western-style buildings has doubled for Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Philadelphia and Washington DC. On the Black Sea coast, Varna can double for French Riviera locations, while the beaches can play as the Greek Islands, or double for the Los Angeles coast during the warm summer months.
