"The heart of Skyrim, Whiterun bids you welcome. For travelers we offer a place of rest..."
―In-game description[src]

Whiterun is a city in the province of Skyrim. It is one of several possible locations that the Eternal Champion may discover in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.


Whiterun is connected to four different settlements. To the southeast is Nimalten City, to the northeast is Laintar Dale, to the west is Black Moor, and to the south is Riverwood.


  • In earlier development, Arena was going to be a tournament-based game. Whiterun's team was known as Devastators.[OOG 1]
