Croatia Locations Steal the Show in HBO Drama ‘Succession’

By Saron Lease, 8th January 2024

HBO Drama ‘Succession’ has done it again! This time at the Golden Globes 2024 where it dominated the TV awards winning four, including Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. Croatia has played a part in the Succession phenomenon. As ‘Total Croatia News’ reported a few years’ back it had been one of a series of programmes to take advantage of fabulous Croatia locations and amazing scenery while filming in the country. Previously the show had achieved no less than seven prestigious Emmy awards for the season partially filmed in Croatia.

Other films using Croatia locations

Succession’s Croatia locations of course follows the discovery by the producers of Star Wars, Robin Hood, Game of Thrones and Mamma Mia, amongst others, that Croatia’s amazing cultural scenery makes a superb backdrop to the action. Netflix ‘The Weekend Away’ is a great thriller filmed in Split old town. These films are a great way to spot the Croatia locations where you’ve been on holiday, or to check out where you might go in future…

If you are taking a Croatia villa in Mlini, then a short walk takes you to the set used in Kate Winslet’s historic drama ‘Lee’. Here the backdrop is of some soon-to-be redeveloped abandoned hotels left in the village of Kupari. The film title reflects Winslet’s role as American photo-journalist Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller. A Cavtat villa? Then check out Nicolas Cage’s comedy ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’.

For ‘Succession’, the super-expensive German-built yacht ‘Solandge’ was used to film in the waters around Cavtat, on the Dubrovnik Riviera and also the islands of Korcula, Mljet and Sipan.  Further north, atmospheric Zagreb the capital city of Croatia and the port of Rijeka in the bay of Kvarner were also locations used for the film. Croatia locations with the backdrop of amazing scenery, take you from the sparkling Adriatic to the mountains and to lovely Istria with its very ‘Tuscan-like’ countryside, loved by mountain bikers and walkers.

‘Succession’ stars British actors –  Brian Cox as the ailing family patriarch and Matthew Macfadyen playing the unlikable Tom Wambsgans.  Kieran Culkin heads up the largely all-American cast.
