Guide to ALL The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Filming Locations: The House and Madripoor

Posted by

The Marvel's series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was filmed in and around Atlanta and Prague, in the Czech Republic. Created by Malcolm Spellman, the episodes are available exclusively on Disney Plus.

The action is set in the new world that emerged after Avengers: Endgame. The show explores the dilemmas of two supporting characters of the Marvel movies, now turned into leads: Falcon and his relationship regarding Captain America's legacy, and the Winter Soldier feeling guilty as he tries to fix everything he did wrong when he was part of Hydra.

Sam Wilson and James Buchanan

In contrast to Wandavision, the series is aimed at those who are already quite familiar with the events that occurred in the previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Anthony Mackie (Altered Carbon, Outside the Wire) plays Sam Wilson / Falcon, the wing-packed Avenger trained by the military. Sebastian Stan (The Martian, Once Upon a Time) is James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes, formerly known as the Winter Soldier, who has done "nothing but fight" in the last 100 years. Erin Kellyman plays Karli Morgenthau, the revel leader of the Flag Smashers.

The series was headquartered at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Georgia. The Czech Film Commission announced that Prague is doubling as Tunisia, Latvia, Turkey, Poland, Germany, and St. Petersburg in Russia.

Welcome to our almost spoiler-free guide to the filming locations of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which we will be updating with every new episode of the series:

Where was The Falcon and The Winter Soldier filmed?

The skydiving canyon
The series opens with a cool action scene that involved the "skydiving unit", made by real wingsuit pilots. There are no reports about the location of the canyon where Falcon is chasing the group of baddies. The landscape may be inserted into the footage using Computer-generated imagery. The Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, GA, and the Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama, appear in the credits of the series, so probably all the military-related facilities, aircraft, and vehicles featured in the show are based there.

According to Jovial Jay from MCU Location Scout, the sequence with the Humvees on the desert near the border with Libya was filmed in a quarry located off Dyer Rd. in Newnan, near Atlanta.

The bar in Tunisia
In the next scene, Sam and his Air Force liaison, Lieutenant Torres (played by Danny Ramirez), are seating in a street coffee in Tunisia. This spot was filmed in an interior courtyard in the Malá Strana district of Prague.

Captain America museum
Sam goes back to Washington to do some moon stuff. The hommage to Captain America held at the Smithsonian National Art and Space Museum was actually filmed at the Wieland Pavilion of Atlanta's High Museum of Art. This location has been used in many productions including Cobra Kai, Black Panther, and also doubles as the Chastain Park Memorial Hospital in The Resident series.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier city
Bucky has a nightmare remembering a mission from his troubled past as a Hydra agent. The flashback scene was filmed in the Czech Savings Bank Expat Center near Wenceslas Square (Rytířská 29). This gorgeous Neo-Renaissance palace used to be a theater until it was re-designed and transformed into a bank in 1890. We saw this building featured in the canceled ABC TV series Whiskey Cavalier.

Silver Deck Mercedes-Benz Stadium
Bucky threatens in a parking garage the New York senator whom he helped get to power as the Winter Soldier. This is the Silver Deck garage adjacent to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The alleyway in Brooklyn where Bucky meets Mr. Nakajima, arguing with his neighbor, is located at 215A Mitchell St SW also in Atlanta.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier House
It was easy to guess that the scenes set in Louisiana would be filmed in and around Savannah, as the Georgian coast has the type of lush vegetation similar to that of the Bayou State. The Savannah Regional Film Commission confirmed our suspicions.

Sarah Wilson's house in Delacroix was filmed in the beautiful Vernonburg neighborhood of Savannah. Vernonburg is located at a sharp curve along the coastal waterways of the Vernon River. It reminds us a lot of John B's house with a pier featured in the Outer Banks series. Note: This is a private home, if you are visiting the community, please respect their privacy.

Wilson Family Seafood
The Wilson Family Seafood dock, where is kept the Paul and Darlene fishing boat, is located in the Moon River area at Downing Piers on the Skidaway Island near Savannah.

The bank in Delacroix
Sam and his sister Sarah (played by Adepero Oduye) try to get a loan to avoid selling their parents' old boat. The bank's offices are the Main Street Advisors Insurance at 201 Main St in Barnesville (GA). This is the same town featured in the 2018 HBO series Sharp Objects.

The Flag Smashers in Switzerland
Somewhere in Switzerland, Torres infiltrates a masked group called the Flag Smashers. The Gasel Bank was filmed at the Ministry of Culture building in Prague, also located in the historic Malá Strana neighborhood.

The presentation of the new Captain America
In the last scene of the first episode, New World Order, the White House announces that the country needs a new Captain America (now played by Wyatt Russell). The press conference was filmed at the Georgia Capitol Museum (the Georgia State Capitol) in Atlanta.

The Star-Spangled Man
In episode two The Star-Spangled Man, the interview for Good Morning America with the new Captain America, John Walker, takes place at the Duluth High School Football Field. Later on, Wilson and Barnes start the mission in a U.S. Government hangar filmed at the Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta.

Pullman Yard in Kirkwood
We immediately recognized the neglected warehouse near Munich (Germany), because it also featured in Boss Level and Baby Driver. The old Pullman Yard in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta is a 27-acre property that used to be a large workshop to repair railroad sleeper cars. In 2017, this place was acquired by a company to redevelop it into a commercial and residential area. The truck scene and the town in Germany could have been filmed in Trubin (a small village near Prague) or near a town called Beroun. At the end of the episode, there is an aerial establishing shot of Berlin's Victory Column in the Tiergarten.

Super soldier house in Baltimore
MCU Location Scout reported some more filming locations in Atlanta. The house of the old super soldier Isaiah Bradley in Baltimore is located at 66 Hogue St NE in the Sweet Auburn neighborhood. The birth home of Martin Luther King, Jr is located nearby in the same street. The police station was filmed outside the 717 Parking G4 on Williams St NW (Fairlie-Poplar District). The scene in Bratislava (Slovakia) with Power Broker’s men and the Flag Smashers and the aiport in Berlin from S01E03 were recorded at the Fulton County Airport-Brown Field.

Madripoor Falcon
In episode 3, Power Broker, Baron Zemo (played by Daniel Bruehl) joins the duo to help them find the source of the super-soldiers. They travel to Madripoor, a fictional island-nation in the Indonesian archipelago, although it rather looks like Hong Kong. This former pirate sanctuary is associated with stories from the X-Men series. The spectacular modern structure is the Troja Bridge over the Vltava river in Prague, which opened in 2014. The skyline of Madripoor was CGI'd in the background.

Madripoor High Town
The underpass with graffiti and street art is the Krog Street Tunnel in Atlanta. The road with the car escorted by motorbikes was filmed on the Georgia State Route 400, near the parking of the Atlanta Financial Center.

Princess bar Madripoor
The Blade Runner-style street scene was filmed at State Alley in Griffin. The Princess bar interior was filmed in a warehouse at 787 Windsor St in Atlanta. The Flag Smashers safe house in Munich was shot at 119 S Hill St, also in Griffin. Jovial Jay reported that the jail in Berlin at the beginning of the episode probably is the Gwinnett County Jail in Lawrenceville.

Madripoor Hign Town
The Sharon Carter's (played by Emily VanCamp) apartment in the Hign Town is the Wimbish House in Midtown Atlanta. The club with the artworks is the Domaine at 1150 Crescent Ave also in Atlanta, a dance club also featured in the Netflix movie Holidate. The container yard in Madripoor's harbor is the OFS Fitel backlot in Norcross near the Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta.

Global Repatriation Council
The GRC Resettlement Camp in Riga (Latvia) is the Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace in Prague. The GRC (Global Repatriation Council) supply depot in Vilnius (Lithuania) is the Monastery of Saint Gabriel in the Smíchov neighborhood of Prague (Pictured). The final scenes of the third episode in Riga were filmed at Karoliny Světlé street near Betlémská and Pruchodní st. also in Prague.

Arabic apartment Falcon
The entrance to the dazzling apartment with stained glass windows from episode 4 is located at 23 Karoliny Světlé in Prague. However, we reckon that the Neo-Moorish style interior room was built in the studios, a controlled environment much more convenient to film a fight scene. Some elements (like the roof) seem to be digitally added via CGI.


Sweetwater Creek State Park
The short scene with the Flag Smashers group near a river was filmed in the historic mill ruins of the Sweetwater Creek State Park near Douglasville (GA). The scene in the tomb was recorded at the Olšany Cemetery, the largest graveyard in Prague.

The Whole World Is Watching
The street staircase in Riga is located in Thunovská street in Prague. This is one of the most picturesque roads that lead to the castle. The café where Lemar Hoskins / Battlestar (played by Clé Bennett) and John Walker are having a break is the Lucerna passage (Pictured). Built in 1920, this intricate historical shopping gallery is situated in the heart of Prague.

Old Factory complex with machinery
The funeral ceremony of Karli's adoptive mother Donya was filmed at the Old Waste Water Treatment Plant in Bubeneč. Built between 1901-1906 and in service until 1967, this historical industrial complex went through a major restoration process. Today it has been converted into Prague's Eco-technical Museum.

John Walker super soldier
There is a short scene with Falcon and Bucky in the street with the Holy Cross Rotond church, one of the oldest in Prague. The sequence when Bucky jumps from a balcony chasing Karli was filmed at Divadelní street, adjacent to the National Theatre. The dramatic final scene of the fourth episode The Whole World Is Watching, was filmed near the Statue of Josef Jungmann at Jungmann Square also in Prague.

More Filming Locations in the Czech Republic

We are updating and expanding this report every week with new filming locations. In the meantime, the Czech Film Commission confirmed that filming took place in Trubin, a small village near Prague. The filmmakers were busy in the Czech Republic using two crews at the same time, as once they've got permission to resume filming after the pandemic outbreak, they were afraid that the situation could halt the production again at any time.

The website Murphy's Multiverse informed that Ploskovice Castle, a manor house in the north of Prague, may have been used as Baron Helmut Zemo’s ancestral home (played by Daniel Brühl).

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier drehorte

The Czech fan website Fandíme Filmu followed the filming of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier across the country. They reported that film crews were spotted near the picturesque fields and forests near a town called Beroun.

The Kasárna Karlín building was used as a Latvian police station. The Olšany Cemetery, was transformed into a Polish cemetery. Crews staged an action scene outside the National Theatre, doubling as Riga.

The Prague Reporter was the first to publish that the series had a base camp in Prague’s Letná Park (Letenská Pláň), the large hilly green area in the north of the city center.


More Filming Locations in Georgia

The Atlanta Magazine reported on various additional locations filmed in Georgia: a large scene set up in downtown Griffin. An outdoor scene at the courthouse in downtown Decatur, in and around Dobbins Air Reserve Base and Lockheed Martin.

In the city of Atlanta, the reported locations include the area near Jimmy Carter Boulevard and I-85, and the Atlantic Station. A large battle scene was filmed near District Ave and 17th 1/2 St. The first image of this article is a screenshot from a scene filmed at the old Pullman Yard in the Kirkwood neighborhood in Atlanta, also featured in Baby Driver and Boss Level.

So impressed that they brought a Swiss Ambulance with a Swiss license plate to Prague just for the details.
