Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Cities and Famous Locations

By   /   5 years ago


Map that is going to be home to all the Elder Scrolls V Skyrim fans, is now available for viewing, while places, with notable significance have also been broken up into parts.

Skyrim is a Nordic land, which means it features plenty of water channels and has a lot of mountainous regions. This region is then broken up into five major cities, while some sub villages are also available.

Here is a breakdown of the various locations:
Dawnstar
This is more of a garrison, which is situated near the northern part of the map. It also played host to one of the bloodiest battles in the Tamriel history and has since been regarded as an area of grave danger.

Falkreath
Situated near the southern part of the map, this town helps form the borders of Cyridill and Hammerfell. However, what is notable is that at one point, Falkreath was a part of Cyridiil.

Markarth Side
Situated in the west of the map, this city is known for its college of the voice. The main purpose of the college, is to help bring back the use of Nordic voice, in warfare.

Rifton
Located in the south-east of the map, this city form the border with Cyrodill and Morrowind. It also plays host to the thieves guild, which also has Barenziah as an active member of the guild.

Whiterun
Situated in the east of the map, this is the place where Barenziah went on to escape from ,with her lover. It was also called the Imperial City. However, after the chaos of recent years, it has lost that title.

Winterhold
This City is one of the wealthiest ones in the game and is also highly influential over the rest of Skyrim. It follows the ideology of Dummer and has the Ysmir Collective and the well known college of Winterhold.

Solitude
Located in the north-west of Skyrim, this City is the main hub for ships and is the mother of all docks. It has many markets and even has the Bards’ College in it. Graduates from the university are almost guaranteed a job in noble households and courts.

Windhelm
Located in the north east of Skryim, Windhelm was once a capital, during the age of the first empire. Now the City is only known for its size, while it also helps serve as a hub for Imperial troops, who guard the Dummeth Pass into Morrowind.

Enjoy and discuss.
