Where is McMafia filmed? - The most complete and updated filming locations for BBC's McMafia

The new BBC eight-part drama is based on the book by The Guardian journalist Misha Glenny. McMafia is a thriller about how corporations are becoming international criminal organisations. You can expect a cocktail of money-laundering, drugs, violence and -of course- Russian mafias.

Iranian-British screenwriter Hossein Amini directs the series, starring James Norton as Alex Godman (Grantchester, War & Peace).

This way, the cast is composed by a multicultural troupe with Aleksey Serebryakov, Maria Shukshina, David Dencik, Merab Ninidze, Juliet Rylance, Oshri Cohen, Karel Roden and Caio Blat.

This expensive production has travelled all over the world. McMafia was filmed primarily in England and Croatia, but the filming location list also includes Russia, India, Turkey, Israel, Qatar, Czech Republic, Serbia, Slovenia, Belize and Egypt. We will be updating and expanding this report with new details, as more information is revealed:
