Four distinct seasons
Romania has four distinct seasons: cold and snowy winter, early spring with blossoming apple trees, warm and sunny summer and mild mellow autumn. In our continental climate the same location may look very different depending on the season, offering filmmakers a variety of visual choices.
Romania also offers plenty of season-specific locations such as winter ski-resorts and ice-skating rinks and summer beach hotels along the coast of the Black Sea.
Low operating costs
Romania is a very cost-effective shooting destination, as it is relatively inexpensive to shoot here, and wide range of different shoot locations within easy reach means you can save on your travel budget. Romania is less expensive than nearby Croatia, the Czech Republic or Ukraine, and yet still has a number of excellent facilities including comprehensive studios.
Add to this refundable VAT on all the money you spend inside the country and Romania will definitely seem a very attractive choice.
Romania is a member of the European Union, which means that if you come from an EU country you do not need to a get a visa.
In case you or your crew members are not EU citizens, getting a tourist visa to Romania is easy and usually does not take more than a week.
