    We need to find a frozen lake for shooting of Czech feature film (2 days) on the beginning of March. Estonia? Latvia? Poland? Finland? Anybody here from these countries? Advice please!

    Hello from Poland! We have two beautiful regions with plenty of scenic locations and lakes.
    1) Mazury – many big and small lakes, forests and small towns.
    2) Tatra mountians – high, rocky mountains with lakes. Similar to Alpes, lower and easier in terms of shooting.
    Valleys of this kind:

    Both regions are reachable during one day trip from the capital and in several hours form other airports/cities. Accomadation is easy to find.

    Feel free to get in touch with me:

    Hi Katerina, how about a few facinating lakes in Belarus (the country with most cost-effective locations & services in Eastern Europe)? And if you REALLY want such a breath-taking lake, I suggest Lake Baikal: 1-meter thick ice, clean and polished like a window glass, so that you may clearly see the bottom 20-30 meters down. Best regards, Eugene Zykov, CEO, Producer Russian Film Commission

    Hi Katerina

    Ladakh in Himalaya (india) is a most attractive tourist location, pls check Pangong and Tsomoriri lake…
    and comparatively it extremely low budget.
