Croatia has a specific geographical layout which makes it possible to access the country's numerous different regions in a relatively short time. This fact and the diversity of locations we have to offer make it a perfect place for all your filming needs.
3,300 km2 of the country's 56,594 km2 belong to its 1246 islands and coast stretches across 4398 km. The mountain area consists of 7,778 km2 that include 48 mountains ranging from 600 m to 1831 m in height.
Whilst in the hinterland, Croatia has a moderately warm and rainy continental climate, the coastal parts offer a warm and comfortable Mediterranean climate, with almost no snow and temperatures ranging from 12 to 35°C throughout the year, making it possible to shoot exteriors even in deep winter.
For your convenience we have divided Croatia into five regions. Each region offers a varietyof locations, and also some that are specific to that part of the country.
Zagreb and the surrounding areas - Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and the largest urban area in the country. It is also the main transportation hub with an international airport.
The city itself is a combination of classic Austro-Hungarian architecture, megalithic socialist buildings and neighborhoods and modern businesses towers. Just a few kilometers from the city center one can find vast wheat and wine fields, forest covered hills and mountains, rivers, lakes and ancient castles.
Istra (or Istria) is a peninsula located between the Gulf of Trieste and the Bay of Kvarner. It is a geographically diverse location, with mountain ranges, river plains, ancient cities and towns and an expansive coastline. With its Italian-based history and influences, the locations in Istra closely resemble Italy and can also portray the south of France.
Kvarner is a bay located southwest of Istra, and consists of the coastal city of Rijeka, a major population centre and one of the largest harbors in the country, as well as the islands of Krk, Cres, Lošinj, Rab and Pag. The islands are well connected to the coast by bridges and ferries.
Gorski kotar is the central mountainous part of Croatia, consisting of mountains, dense forests, rivers and lakes. This is where the Plitvice Lakes National Park is located. Plitvice Lakes consists of many beautiful lakes, rivers and stunning waterfalls.
These regions are quite shooting-friendly when it comes to shooting permits, good climate, 5-star accommodation (both villas and hotels), as well as two international airports in Pula and on the island of Krk. They are also only few hours drive away from Zagreb, the basis of Croatian film production.
Dalmatia is the country's coastal region. Along the coastline one can find beautiful beaches, spectacular serpentines and small ancient towns. The city of Split is the biggest city in the region. It is an urban center and has an international airport.
Lika is a mountainous region in the South of the country, near the coast. It is roughly bound by the Velebit mountain from the southwest and the Plješevica mountain from the northeast. Here one can find massive mountain chains, rocky gorges, canyons, mountain lakes and rivers.
Croatia has over a thousand islands, and most of them are well-connected to the coast and each other. The islands have a variety of beaches, from tropical sandy ones to ones covered in pebbles, rocks, and even beaches hidden between cliffs and in caves.
Dubrovnik is one of the most famous destinations in Croatia. It is a medieval walled city that has not changed much over time. The city's defining feature are its massive walls and turrets. Because of this, Dubrovnik is a very popular filming location for big productions such as HBO's Game of Thrones and others. The city has a variety of 5-star hotels and also an international airport, very well-connected and close to the city.
The eastern part of the country is where most of the agricultural production is located. Slavonija is an expansive flat plain full of green meadows, forest and beautiful wheat fields, which turn golden in June.
The populated areas consist mainly of villages and small towns, with a few larger population centers, like the city of Osijek, which is built around a well-preserved baroque fort.
