Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. BWI stood in for Helsinki's airport in that same episode. "We shot the international side of BWI for the Helsinki airport, which believe it or not, is a pretty close match architecturally," said S. Scott Clackum, location manager for the series.
The Belvedere, 1 E. Chase St.: Although mistaken on Twitter for the cast and crew of "Mad Men," "Veep" filmed a "police breakfast" for the first season at the historic Belvedere hotel.
Bond Street Social, 901 S Bond St., Baltimore. This Fells Point bar served as the backdrop for a photo-op in Season 2 involving Selina, her divorced husband and her daughter. The goal was to make Selina look a little more family friendly.

The Engineers Club, 11 W. Mt. Vernon Place, Baltimore. "Veep" filmed most of an entire episode set in Helsinki, Finland, at the Engineers Club, according to S. Scott Clackum, location manager for the series. Production designer Jim Gloster won an Art Directors Guild Award for the Season 2 episode in part because he made the Engineers Club stand in for Helsinki so successfully. "We didn't shoot anything in Helsinki," Clackum said. "We had a little second unit shoot some snowy streets, but it was otherwise done here.

Film, TV classics
Maryland's big and small screen history by no means began (or, we trust, ends) with "House of Cards" and "Veep." Here are some locations from other films or projects.
Baltimore Arena, 201 W. Baltimore St., Baltimore. In 1979's "The Seduction of Joe Tynan," when the title character, a U.S. Senator played by Alan Alda, is put up for a presidential nomination at the Democratic convention, it's held here. Look for former city Comptroller Hyman Pressman as the crowd is shown roaring its approval.
Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, Linthicum. Director Jodie Foster shot scenes for her 1995 film "Home for the Holidays" at one of BWI's arrival gates. In addition, the house that played the Larson family home is on Southern Avenue in Lauraville.
The Battle Monument, Calvert Street between Fayette and Lexington streets, Baltimore. In 2007's "Live Free or Die Hard," when Bruce Willis and Justin Long's characters are stuck in D.C. traffic, they're actually driving in Baltimore, with this memorial to the soldiers who defended the city during the War of 1812 clearly visible in the background. Drivers familiar with the vagaries of city traffic may notice that cars are heading the wrong way on what are normally one-way streets.
