Of course, your dedicated production coordinator can connect you with the right journalist fixer and location scout to provide perfect background details to enrich your production in Bulgaria. Until then, these location suggestions give you a true taste of the country’s diverse cultural origins.

Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria and a city that boasts enthralling landmarks and cultural treasures. Stunning examples of history abound, from the Orthodox architecture of the iconic Alexander Nevsky Cathedral to the ancient Roman Serdika ruins. Your location scout will give you a run-down of all the top sites including streets that take in the vibrant outdoor art scene and café culture, while your production coordinator in Bulgaria will help secure location access and all necessary film permits.

Veliko Tarnovo

Known for its striking medieval fortress atop the steep cliffs overlooking the Yantra River, Veliko Tarnovo is nestled in the heart of Bulgaria. The imposing Tsarevets Fortress offers a glimpse into Bulgaria’s royal past, while the town’s cobblestone streets and charming traditional houses and artisan workshops, provide a gorgeous setting for commercials, music videos, and more. However, due to its awkward layout, shooting may be limited, which is why we recommend working with a trusted production coordinator in Bulgaria to manage access and organize permits.

Varna is a coastal gem situated on the Black Sea Coast. The third largest city in Bulgaria, it offers a wide choice of filming locations from its beachfront and vibrant seaside promenade to its lively nightlife scene, waterfront restaurants, and bustling markets. The city’s archaeological museum houses a remarkable collection of Thracian artifacts, including the world-famous Gold of Varna, dating back over 6,000 years. For historical background or up-to-the-minute news stories, our trusted journalist fixer here can help you source the stories that matter.


For film professionals looking for a natural landscape, Burgas might just fit the bill. Though it’s a busy port city on the southern Black Sea coast, its nearby salt pans, and wetlands are home to diverse bird species and unique ecosystems and, as your location scout will tell you, offer a highly unique location to shoot in. Additionally, the Sea Garden, a sprawling park along the Burgas waterfront, provides another interesting nature-laden location, with its shady pathways, colorful flower beds, and panoramic sea views.

Your production coordinator in Bulgaria would be remiss if they excluded Plovdiv, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Europe, from your itinerary. The charming Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a maze of narrow cobblestone streets, lined with beautifully restored Revival-era houses and ancient Roman ruins. The city’s Roman Theatre, still used for performances today, offers sweeping views of the surrounding hillsides. It’s a truly magical place and definitely one to look at if you’re location scouting.
