Croatia continues to attract international film and TV productions who choose the country for being an ideal filming location.
Last month, the popular German TV station VOX started broadcasting the second season of the reality show “First Dates Hotel”, which was entirely filmed in Istria, Croatia and produced by Warner Bros.
Filming took place last autumn in and around Buje on the Istrian peninsular for almost a month.
First Dates Hotel is a romantic reality show in which single women and men from all over Germany have the opportunity to meet, spend time together in a relaxed atmosphere, and at best – to fall in love.
Under the motto “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, a blind date is organised, so if there is a spark between the couple during a romantic dinner, their stay at the First Dates Hotel can be extended.
Then they have the opportunity of getting to know each other better on a second date to see how well they actually get along, and besides an unforgettable holiday in Istria there are a number of opportunities for them – from talking by the pool, sipping cocktails in the hotel bar, walking through the breath-taking Istrian landscapes, the Istrian Tourist Board said.
Famous chef Roland Trettl, who once ran a restaurant in Salzburg, Ikarus – Hangar 7, crowned with two Michelin stars, is the host of the second season of the show, which welcomes charismatic singles to a dream location in Istria.
The show airs every Monday at 20:15 on VOX.
