The Witcher Locations - Old Vizima
Old Vizima

Surrounded by its low palisade, Old Vizima conjures the spirit of yesteryear, when even the capitals of powerful nations looked like makeshift collections of wooden, thatched huts, and their streets were filled with hens and dirty children. Relocating his seat from the Old Manor to the Royal Castle, King Foltest began the long process of converting Vizima from a wooden village into a brick town. The war was merciless to Old Vizima's inhabitants. At its end, the area became something of a ghetto for nonhumans - assimilated elves and dwarves were forced to settle where even the poor did not want to live. Currently Old Vizima is an arena of skirmishes between knights of the Order and the Scoia'tael.
