The beauties of Slovenia have obviously attracted some producers from India, which is considered to be the country with the highest turnover of film production in the world; moreover, they have recently begun to shoot 'Tollywood' movies here in Slovenia. The venues for romantic and melodramatic stories with happy endings can be found in abundance in Slovenia. We will only list some locations that attracted moviemakers from India: Lake Bled
with its picturesque island and church, surrounded with mountains, the adorable coastal town of Piran
with its narrow streets and preserved Venetian architecture, the mighty underground Karst world in the acoustic halls of Caves of Postojna
as well as the attractive and lively Slovenian capital
with its recognizable castle and Ljubljanica River. Producers from India were also delighted with various locations in Triglav National Park
Through the production of Indian movies, Slovenia is also depicted as a country that is worth visiting. Although you may not experience as many dramatic plots as do the characters in the Tollywood movies when you visit Slovenia, but Slovenia will definitely not leave you cold. We definitely hope you experience at least one of the emotional moments that can be seen in the happy endings of the Tollywood movies during your visit. May the Tollywood endings in Slovenia
never really end and be constantly repeated.
The first Tollywood film shot in Slovenia - Naayak
was released worldwide on January 9, 2013.
"We were shooting in Slovenia for a few days and little do people know that this is the first Indian movie to be shot there. The mayor of Ljubljana himself commenced the shoot by executing the 1st clap. The whole experience was completely mesmerizing.
" - Kajal Agarwal, Leading Actress in the movie Nayaak.
"I am very pleased that India has finally discovered Slovenia. It's time for Indian cinema to feel Slovenia.

"My doors are open to all Indian citizens. I am prepared and willing to knock on the doors of local authorities in Slovenia if such endeavours serve the interest of Indian filmmakers, businessmen and citizens.
