For those who’re not sure about where Slovenia is located in the world, its a beautiful country located in central Europe. Its a country with some amazing natural scenery and easily accessible locations, waiting to be tapped by Indian filmmakers.
Its a very small country, and so most locations can be accessed within a couple of hours of travel, and the rapidly changing landscape presents enormous opportunities for filming.
Filmmakers get access to a range of picturesque backgrounds – Alpine peaks to Mediterranean looks, green meadows and rolling hills, Karst cave, Bled Island, pine forests, lakes, rivers and bubbling streams, vineyards, beaches, castles and palaces.
Slovenia is where “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” was filmed.
And although Bollywood may not have started filming here, South Indian filmmaker VV Vinayak has filmed his Telugu-language (regional language of India) feature film ‘Nayak’ in Slovenia.
The Postojna Caves in western Slovenia, the alpine resort town of Bled in the north-west near the Austrian border and Piran, an historic medieval town on the Adriatic coast, are the eye-catching locales that have been featured in this Indian film.
Indian and Bollywood producers are constantly on the look-out for virgin locations, which can create a wow effect on their audiences. And Slovenia could definitely be that country in the future for Bollywood films.
Slovenia is known for its unspoilt nature and easily accessible locations. Checkout this video to get a glimpse of what the country has to offer.
