For the entire map, just click the image to the left.

Dawnstar City
This is a garrison town on the northern areas of Skyrim. In there, after the destruction of a fortress, took place one of the most brutal and bloody battles in the history of Tamriel so therefore this location is expected to be a very dangerous one!

Falkreath City
Situated in the south-western areas, this city is at the border with Cyrodiil and Hammerfell. This mysterious location was once part of the Cyrodiil.

Markarth Side City
This is the home of the Imperial College of Voice, a place created by Tiber Septim to restore the Voice of the art of warfare. You can find this city in the western parts of the map.

Riften City
Also known as Rifton, this city is situated in the south-eastern areas at the borders with Cyrodiil and Morrorwind. It was in Rifton that Barenziah joined the Thieves Guild during her return to Morrowind from exile in Skyrim.

Whiterun City
Situated in the central-eastern area of the map, this is the place where Barenziah escaped to for a while with her young lover. Originally known as the Imperial City of Skyrim, it has lost its title after several acts of chaos: dynastic feuds, attacks and serious weather problems (alternating floods and droughts and so on).

Winterhold City
Close to the border with Dunmer, it is heavily affected by their ways and ideas, but it’s also one of the wealthiest and most influential cities in Skyrim. It’s also the place where you can find the Ysmir Collective and the College of Winterhold.

Solitude City
This is the main port and harbor, home of the Bards’ College. There are lots of markets to be found here and also many Bards’ College graduates who are almost guaranteed jobs in noble households and courts.

Windhelm City
Once the capital, it holds the Palace of the Kings, one of the few First Empire buildings that still stand. However, now it’s just a home for the imperial troops who guard the Dumeth Pass to Morrorwind.
