The creative and cultural industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the European Union, and this ever-increasing trend is also evident in Croatia. The creative industry includes a range of activities from music, publishing, design, architecture, photography to film industry and video games industry that hold the most significant potential today.
In recent years, Croatia has become a destination for making world-famous series and films such as Game of Thrones, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Robin Hood: Origins, The Terror etc. This is why, in 2017, the Finacial Times’ fDi Magazine awarded Croatia a Film Industry specialism award.
In addition, the world-famous video games such as Serious Sam, The Talos Principle, Unity of Command, Captain Brawe etc. have also been produced in Croatia, while the Gaming Industry Hub “Pismo” in Novska and soon to be opened Incubator of Creative Industries in Koprivnica bring together entrepreneurs from this field.
