It was a spark of ingenuity that led to the 2005 transformation of historic state-owned Boyana Film Studio into the show-stopping 75-acre Nu Boyana Studio Complex it is today. And it didn’t take long before Hollywood sat up and took notice of this joint creation of Nu Image and Millennium Films, resplendent with its endless backlots, well-appointed stages, and array of state-of-the-art bells and whistles.
Ever since, Bulgaria has been a hive of feature filmmaking – and in particular, of the film d’action – putting all that expertise, specialty crew, stunt work, and set builds at your fingertips. If the rooftops of New York or London start to feel a bit metropolitan, or you need an infusion of natural beauty, Nu Boyana is nestled at the foot of Vistosha Mountain, where chairlifts run to the top of a tree-studded scape, offering panoramic views of Sofia below. Add to this the variety of natural locations the country offers – from snowfields to the sea, to valleys and forests – there’s no shortage of reasons to take a closer look.
