Watching Netflix’s Detective Forst deliver stunning visuals of the cold, viewers were left wondering where the series was shot, and where it takes place. So, here’s all you need to know about the filming and setting of the show.
Where was Netflix’s Detective Forst filmed?
Detective Forst was mostly shot in Zakopane, Poland. The filming also moved to the Capital City of Warsaw, and another town called Nowy Targ. Some parts of Slovakia were used as well.
The series was shot on location to deliver the most authentic visuals from the Polish town of Zakopane. The town is located at the base of the Tatra mountains, where Detective Forst tries to find a brutal killer. Bąkowo Zohylina Wyżnio at Józefa Piłsudskiego 28A in Zakopane was a reported shooting location. Another popular Zakopane area is Krupówki Street, which was also spotted in the show.
Nowy Targ, a town at the foot of the Gorce Mountains was also used to add scenes featuring nature and hilly landscapes. But a significant part of the series was also shot in the Capital City of Warsaw. It contributed to the cold climate aesthetic. Lastly, a few hilly backdrops were also added by moving the production to a few parts of Slovakia.
Where is Detective Forst Season 1 set?
The first season of Detective Forst sees the titular character investigating murders around the Tatra mountains and in Zakopane, Poland.
Since the show was mostly shot on location, viewers were able to get the most faithful adaptation of Zakopane and its surrounding areas in Poland. Even before the series arrived on Netflix, one of its descriptions confirmed that the cynical detective Wiktor Forst would be seen investigating brutal murders around the Tatra Mountains.
The official synopsis of Detective Forst reads:
“When a detective’s maverick approach to investigating gets him suspended, he teams with a journalist to solve a series of brutal murders outside the law.”
