Zagreb, 20.04.2012.


Zagreb's squares, streets and buildings have made it into a number of foreign films and TV series (episodes), some of which are quite renown! Zagreb's main train station "plays" Sirkeci train station in Istanbul (Turkey) in a very well know film "From Russia with Love" (1963) about the most famous secret agent in the world James Bond, played by Sean Connery in this one.

The city is also shown in some Oscar awarded films like "Sofie's choice" (1982) by director Alan J. Pakula where Sofie is played by Meryl Streep who won the Oscar for the Best actress for that role. German film "Die Blechtrommel" by Volker Schlöndorff won the award for the Best foreign film in 1979, in this film Zagreb partially "plays" Gdanjsk (Russia). More... Famous director Orson Wells filmed "Process" here in 1969, a film based on a book of the same name by Franc Kafka. Fans of Asian action films were only too happy when Jackie Chan performed various stunts on the streets of Zagreb in "Armour of God" (1987) and fans of comic strips were overwhelmed when Zagreb was shown in, less known, 1st version of "Captain America" based on a series about the hero of the same name by Marvel Comics filmed in 1990. Apart from films, quite a few well liked series (episodes) were filmed here as well, such as: two episodes of a popular American series "The Dirty Dozen" (1987 and 1988), as well as some episodes of "The Winds of War" (1983) which won three Emmy TV awards for, among others, the Best series. In 2016, a new series “McMafia” by BBC is to be partially filmed in the city. Our list does end here, but we have chosen just some of the best known films and TV series, so don't be surprised if you find yourselves in a films scene on the streets of Zagreb during your visit.
