Filming Locations Guide: Where was Carnival Row filmed?

Where was Carnival Row filmed
Posted by
The dark fantasy world of Carnival Row is an original story created by René Echevarria and Travis Beacham. The Fae are mythical creatures who have fleed their homeland, invaded by the human empire of The Pact. Carnival Row is actually the name of a neighborhood and a sort of ghetto in The Burgue (rivals of The Pact), where many Fae (all the non-human folks) have found refuge.

The eight-episode series, which has been renewed for a second season, co-stars Orlando Bloom as inspector Rycroft Philostrate and Cara Delevingne as fae Vignette Stonemoss. The main cast is completed by Tamzin Merchant playing Imogen Spurnrose and David Gyasi performing the wealthy faun Agreus Astrayon. Most of Carnival Row was filmed at the Barrandov Studios in Prague, and some additional filming locations were also shot in the Czech Republic. It cointains no spoliers!

Obviously there's a lot of CGI in the series, but this expensive production also built streets and many interiors (including the Tetterby hotel and the Constabulary) in large and detailed sets in the Barrandov Studios backlot.
