"Whiterun is the heart of Skyrim, its towering palace rivaling even the great castles of Cyrodiil. But should you tire of the Jarl's hospitality, another adventure awaits a few hours to the east of the city, along the road that rises above White River Gorge."
―Marcius Carvain



"Whiterun is one of the nine major cities in the province of Skyrim; it is the capital of the Whiterun Hold region of Skyrim. Whiterun is well-known throughout the Empire for being the trading capital of Skyrim, due to its convenient location, surrounding the Hold capitals of Skyrim."

"Whiterun is the capital city of Whiterun Hold, in the center of the province of Skyrim. In Whiterun, Nords live in the 'traditional' manner: their lives are simple, harsh, and rooted in ancient traditions. Even the city's fortifications—wooden and stone palisade walls and the sheer defensive advantage offered by its position on a large bluff that raises the city above the surrounding tundra—are archaic by contemporary standards. Due to its central location, Whiterun serves as the commercial heart of Skyrim."

"Whiterun is a well-fortified city with watchtowers all along the border. The western gate is the only entrance to Whiterun, which is heavily fortified, with a drawbridge connecting the city."

This is very nice with the rain! This is the first village you visit when you follow the story, right? I think I aborted the story here and went exploring for the next 20 hours, lol.

Am I the only one who found it weird that they never seemed to care that the wall was in need of repair?

Who needs a wall when the best guards are protecting our sweetrolls? xD

It's a great mod that allows the player to play with ImageFX, it's great for screenshots without being heavy like ENBSeries.

Nice houses in the front of the picture. Looks like a quaint area outside of the fortified walls. The rain and dark clouds are a nice touch
