Grand finale and perfect farewell was made by ‘Robin Hood: Origins' production team setting the old Dubrovnik’s port on fire, so locals and tourists could enjoy the artificial show. 

Tons of special effects were used to burn down ‘Nottingham’, something Dubrovnik hasn’t seen before.


Although, Dubrovnik did ‘act’ in Star Wars and was ‘King’s Landing’ for ‘Game of Thrones’ this was most spectacular scene.

New Robin Hood film, directed by Otto Bathurst was filmed in Dubrovnik for the past two weeks and everyone from actors Jamie Foxx, Jamie Dornan, Taron Egerton and Eve Hewson seemed to have a good time on the set. Jamie Foxx even brought his daughter to Dubrovnik. 

Film's producer E.Bennett Walsh, for Dubrovnik Daily said 't’s really two reasons why we were able to bring Robin Hood to Dubrovnik. It’s the openness of the great City of Dubrovnik to let us in and to turn our dream into Nottingham and the Croatian cash incentive that made it possible for us to come down and actually create the vision Otto has come up with'.
