The HBO fantasy series Game of Thones has secured Croatia's place in celluloid history, but did you know its capital Zagreb has also served as the location for a crop of cult international films, as well as countless domestic productions?
In its cinematic heyday, Croatia churned out some 124 Yugoslavian films and 145 international co-productions from its famous Jadran film studio - one of the biggest in Central Europe before the war. There's a surprising raft of productions shot in and around Croatia's capital, like the world-dominating spy-caper 'James Bond: From Russia with Love' and Orson Welles' interpretation of Kafka's absurd, existentialist novel 'The Trial', filmed in the pretty Habsburg-era Old Town. There's plenty more scenery to chew on with our list of the best films shot in Zagreb.
