In its plans for providing a world class studio Nu Boyana has now added an underwater stage. Completed in February 2018, it boasts of being the largest underwater filming facility in Europe.
At a size of 20m x 20m x 6m deep, (65ft x 65ft x 20ft deep ) and a Volume of 2400m3. It has a UV filtration system reducing the use of chlorine thus reducing costume, set bleach out and actor’s eye/skin irritation.

The viewing gallery houses a glass-viewing window of 2m by 1.5m.
