4. Moscow, Russia
The theater-looking room where Beth plays the chess tournament in Moscow are filmed in Berlin’s Old City Hall inside the room known as the Baerensaal or the Bear Chamber. The old City Hall is not used as its original function, but is still a government building — it houses the Senate and is used for events and as a filming location. The exterior of the building is notable, with a tower that reaches 260 feet high and a statue of the goddess Fortuna on top. The Bear Chamber, used for the Council of Ministers, has gone through significant alteration since its original creation. It once had windows and arcades on both sides, now closed off.
After her historic win, Beth asks to get out of her car and walks in Berlin, playing chess in a park. That scene is filmed in the Rose Garden on Karl Marx Allee.
