Bulgaria, Europe
Brahmastra’s first film was shot in the scenic Balkan nation of Bulgaria in February and March 2018. Large chunks of the film were shot against the breathtaking Bulgarian mountains. Boyana Church and Vrana Palace are well-known landmarks in Sofia, the country’s capital. Seeing the city’s many modern museums, galleries, parks and old churches is worthwhile.
