Thalmor Embassy is a settlement located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Hoping to discover secret information about the Dragon Crisis, Delphine sends the Dragonborn to the Thalmor Embassy. Disguised as a guest attending Elenwen's party, the Dragonborn creates a distraction and discovers several dossiers and letters about the Civil War in Skyrim, but nothing about the Dragon Crisis. The Dragonborn does, however, learn that a Dragon Loremaster of the Blades, Esbern, is in Skyrim and is wanted by the Thalmor. Attempting to escape, the Dragonborn discovers Etienne Rarnis, a member of the Thieves Guild who was being interrogated by the Thalmor in regards to Esbern's presence in Riften.
An Unusual Gem needed to restore the Crown of Barenziah is found in Thalmor Embassy, Elenwen's Solar. Up the stairs in the bedroom to the left on the wardrobe next to the bed. It is advised to collect this stone before completing Diplomatic Immunity as it is technically impossible to re-enter the Embassy afterward. Using Whirlwind Sprint to climb the wall of the cave that leads back to Skyrim can allow re-entrance into the Embassy. It is possible to stack firewood (or any other easy stackable item) between the cave's stone pillar and the wall, and jump up the cliff. Horses may also be used to gain access to Elenwen's Solar. You may also be able to jump up if you can turn into a werewolf. Another way in is to go to side of the embassy and use the Summon Arvak spell then mount him through the wall.
The barracks in the Thalmor Embassy can still be accessed after Diplomatic Immunity and is a great source of Altmer blood, which is needed for activating the Dwemer mechanism at Septimus Signus's Outpost. Also if Malborn doesn't survive, his blood can be harvested as well for Bosmer blood.
