Barrandov Studio is one of the largest and oldest film studios in Europe. Since its foundation in 1931, the studio has hosted productions of over 5,000 Czech and international films. Film is a complex activity, requiring cooperation of numerous branches, fields, and crafts. The key advantage of Barrandov Studio is that almost all these services are offered at a single location – the famed hill above Prague where, in the beginning of the 1930s, its founding fathers, the Havel brothers, decided to build their dream-factory. Barrandov Studio is known all over the world for its unique environment and a helpful approach of its employees. The sound stages and the related services are used by Czech as well as international film crews – most frequently from USA, UK, France, and Germany. During the last ten years, Barrandov Studio has also become a favorite production base for film and TV commercials. Total area of Barrandov stages is 10,400 m² (112,000 ft²), all our stages are soundproof and allow for direct sound recording. They are designed to accommodate any lighting and energy requirements. Most of the stages are equipped with a winch system enabling suspension of lighting bridges, counterweights, and sets. Together with the stages, we offer high-quality support facilities – production rooms, make-up rooms, dressing rooms, camera and prop rooms, and catering areas. 15 minutes form Václav Havel Airport, 10 minutes from Prague city center.
