Students Create a Fully Detailed, To-Scale Map of the World of The Witcher

Students from Warsaw University in Poland have created a fully detailed, to-scale map of The Witcher universe’s continent, and it’s a doozy that shows off the scale of Geralt’s adventures from Kaer Morhen to Skellige and beyond.

Here’s a more accessible version of the same map.

The map reads a lot like any other professionally designed map, just you know, with fantasy cities and countries. It even comes with a helpful set of symbols that divides cities by population scale, country borders, and even elevation.

The whole thing really puts Geralt’s adventures into perspective. In The Witcher 3, a journey from Skellige to Kaer Morhen really only takes a minute while the game loads the aging fortress. On this to-scale map, it’s a literal continent away in polar opposite corners.

I do also appreciate having the map to show how remarkably close Novigrad is to Oxenfurt, despite the cities feeling relatively distinct. It’s like Novigrad is Chicago and Oxenfurt is Joliet.

You can also see how warfare through the centuries has influenced borders. In The Witcher 3, Nilfgaard has all but won the war for control of Temeria and subsequently Redania. It’s easy to see how their southern position would given them a strong foot to start invading Cintra, Ciri’s original home, and on towards Brokilon and Temeria. It’s no wonder the Novigrad region took center stage, given its immediate proximity to Redania, where King Radovid exacts his lethal campaign against mages in the games.

The Witcher season 2 debuted late last year to generally positive reception, and season 3 is reportedly almost fully written. Star Henry Cavill has said he hopes the next season stays faithful to the books, and a map like this one certainly doesn’t hurt.
