Skyrim - Locations, Quests, Places of Interest

Skyrim is a province within Elder Scrolls Online. Many should be familiar with it from the latest Elder Scrolls Game 'Skyrim'. It's situated in the northern part of Tamriel and is a land of high mountains, snow and ice. It borders Morrowind on the East, Cyrodiil on the South, Hammerfell on the South-west, and High Rock on the west. Skyrim is the home of the Nords and belongs to the Ebonheart Pact.

The province is ruled by a High King and consorts. The province consists of 9 holds. Each is ruled by a Jarl. Largest cities of Skyrim are: Dawnstar, Falkreath, Markarth, Morthal, Riften, Solitude, Whiterun, Winterhold and Windhelm.

Cities of Skyrim

Dawnstar is the town on the northern coast of the province. It is one of the northern most cities along with Solitude and Winterhold.

Falkreath is the center of Falkreath Hold. The city is situated on the south-west, near the border with Hammerfell.

Markarth is capital of The Reach hold and is situated in the western part of the province.

Morthal is capital of Hjaalmarch hold and also situated in the western part of Skyrim.

Riften is capital of The Rift hold. The town is located in the south–east near the borders with Cyrodiil and Morrowind.

Solitude is capital of Haafingar. The town is located in the north-western part of Skyrim near the ocean. It has a big harbour and a port.

Whiterun is capital of Whiterun Hold and situated in the center of Skyrim.

Winterhold is the capital of Winterhold located in the north-eastern part of the province.

Windhelm is the capital of Eastmarch hold.

Skyrim has a cold climate filled with mountains. Skyrim has five of the highest peaks in Tamriel. Mountains with snow and tundra plains make the survival rather difficult. Though the climate is severe you can meet many animals and creatures here, among them the legendary Giants . Other races prefer not to visit the province because of the climate and the Nords who like to fight and drink alot of Mead. The Nords are a tough hardy people, shaped by their harsh environment.

Skyrim is the first region of the continent that was settled by humans, who came from Atmora (land in the far north). That’s why Skyrim is called the Old Kingdom or the Fatherland. Ysgramor came here with his people and started to live in the province. History of Nords is full of wars and expansions. They are skilled and fearless warriors. Now they are in Ebonheart Pact which fights against other factions and against ancient evil.

    What line of quests would I have to do to enter skyrim? I've only really been following the whole alliances quests. Feedback appreciated :)

      Right now only 3 locations of Skyrim province are added – Bleakrock Isle, Eastmarch and The Rift. There are several variants to visit these territories:

      1) You can start playing as a member of Ebonheart Pact. Skyrim province belongs to this alliance. You will be able to visit these locations while questing.
      2) If you are playing as a member of other alliance you can visit these locations after completing your faction’s quests.

        I am part of the ebonheart pact, is their a boat I need to get on, or do I just walk through the border dividing morrowind and skyrim?

            If you are Ebonheart Pact member you don't have to rush, you will visit Eastmarch when you are 30th level. Eastmarch is a location of Skyrim province.

            I am not sure you understand all the things: there is no one big location called Skyrim. In Elder Scrolls Online, Skyrim province is divided into several smaller parts. For example Eastmarch is one of them.

              Ok thanks for making me aware, but I wasn't sure if you enter via east match or the rift which is why I gesture skyrim. I am level 25 and was curious as I looked at the recommended levels for various quests was about level 30 and I assumed I would be about that level by then. Hence I tried to time this right.
