Barrandov Studio has expanded its range of services for film productions with a Medieval Town set located on backlot immediately adjacent to the sound stages.
The extensive set in which the historical series KNIGHTFALL was shot for the History Channel, including a faithful replica of 14th-century Paris and the seat of the Knights Templar, was purchased by Barrandov Studio in September. Both seasons of the KNIGHTFALL series were filmed on studio's exterior backlot spanning 160,000 sqm and on Barrandov sound stages in 2016–2018.
The exceptionally large set measures over 100 by 150 metres in area, with many of the buildings exceeding ten meters in height. It took roughly 150 craftsmen from the Barrandov Set Construction Department two months to complete. The new set was partially used also for filming the series CARNIVAL ROW, starring Orlando Bloom.
