According to a user comment on the IMDB, it's meant to be the Czech Republic. Either way, it looks like New York. :)
Quote It's probably best that non of this episode was filmed in the Czech Republic as the cast and crew would have been in danger of being lynched by angry Czechs.

Despite taking place more than ten years after the fall of communism and being set in what was always one of the most liberal and cosmopolitan former Warsaw Pact countries the writers trot out all the Cold War clichés, children can be bought and sold for a couple of dollars, the police are either incompetent or corrupt and everyone wears a fur hat.

The writers also seem to have no idea of how law enforcement occurs or how police act outside of the USA. The idea that a European police force is going to let armed foreigners run around arresting people, that interviews are done in what looks like a dingy cellar without a representative of the local force being present and, most of all, that visiting American coppers are going to be permitted to beat information out of a suspect is ridiculous to the point of stupidity.

They also seem not to have spared five minutes to perform a google search into what Europol is. The organisation is depicted as some sort of trans-national FBI whose agents travel Europe undertaking investigations and making arrests when in reality it's nothing more than an information service for Europe's national police services.

This episode had a strong central idea but to anyone outside the US and probably more than a few inside it the amateurish effort that ended up on the screen is a major letdown.

Aside from the factual inaccuracies, there doesn't seem much point in setting an episode in a foreign country unless you're going to film there.

P.S. Apparently it's Greenwich Village, not Brooklyn.

you are right. i want to say Praga, not Poland :(
another page say Brooklyn.

Den Ermittler Elliot Stabler führt ein Fall nach Prag in Tschechische Republik. Sehr passend sind die Autos die dort die Strassen bevölkern: Citroen DS, 2CV, Fiat X1/9, VW Käfer und auch ein BMW 2002 in Verona mit US-Stoßstangen! Dieser rote 02 steht fast in jeder Strasse in Prag. Nett ist auch das deutsche Fantasiekennzeichen am BMW E46 des deutschen Bösewichts Erich Tassig. Tatsächlich sind die Pragszenen in Brooklyn/NY gedreht.
