Where was Wednesday filmed? 5 Addams-esque locations to visit if you’re in Romania

A Wednesday-inspired trip through Romania? Register with us.

If there’s anything more suitable to do in Romania in autumn, let us know; But for now, we think Wednesday’s nationwide tour is exactly what the doctor ordered.

If you’d like to visit some of the most famous sites from Tim Burton’s latest gothic work, here’s a list of must-see Romanian landmarks – many of which are located in the country’s capital, Bucharest.

Polytechnic University

The Roman capital can be seen several times over the course of the series. For example, in the first episode, when Wednesday is expelled from school for unleashing a piranha on her classmates, the film takes place at Polytechnic University.

Botanical Gardens and Casa Montero

Bucharest’s Botanical Gardens are the greenhouse of the Nevermore Academy, while its interiors were filmed at Casa Montero – a national monument that was once the headquarters of the Writers’ Union of Romania. How appropriate for a Wednesday, aspiring writer!

Niculescu Dorobanto House

Another Wednesday location in Bucharest is Casa Niculescu-Dorobantu. With its neo-Gothic style, it served as an ideal location to photograph some of the interiors of Nevermore Academy.

Cantacozino Castle

But enough of Bucharest! Let’s head out, our next stop will be Cantacozino Castle. One look at him will be enough for Wednesday fans to recognize the exterior of Nevermore Academy – although it looks much more attractive in real life. The castle was built for Prince Gheorghe Gregor Cantacuzino at the beginning of the 20th century and is open to visitors.

Lakes Brăneşti and Sterbei

Do you remember Edgar Allan Poe’s Lake Race? The competition between the four Nevermore factions (forgive us for saying almost “Hogwarts houses” here…) is filmed on two of Romania’s lakes, Brăneşti and Sterbei. In real life, these places are known as popular hunting sites, not battlefields for Nevermore students.
