Βίζιμα or Wyzim (Polish: Wyzima) is the capital city of Temeria, one of the Βόρεια Βασίλεια and the seat of king Foltest. The city is not described in great detail in the Witcher saga. Most of the description comes from the short story "Ο Μάγιστρος". In that tale, two taverns are mentioned: The Old Narakort and The Fox. There is also mention of the Roper's Gate, by which Γκέραλτ enters the town.
Στο παιχνίδι The Witcher
Located on the shores of a beautiful lake, Βίζιμα is a walled city and the main setting of The Witcher computer game. The city is under a state of quarantine for the duration of the game, so movement about town in general is limited most of the time, and totally restricted, for some particular areas.

- Vizima, the capital of Temeria, is the largest city in the kingdom. It is located on the shore of Lake Vizima, at the intersection of important trade routes, one of which is a waterway. Owing to a developed network of roads, the city draws considerable profit from trade. By King Foltest's order, the city is governed by Burgomeister Velerad. Βίζιμα is divided into three large district. The poorest one is the Συνοικία του Ναού, where Saint Lebioda's Hospital and the Cloister of the Order of the Flaming Rose are located. The Trade Quarter is home to the wealthiest and most important inhabitants, and both the town hall and the main marketplace are situated there. The oldest part of the city, Παλιά Βίζιμα, has been recently converted into a ghetto for non-humans.
- I acquired a pass which allows me to pass through the gates into the city in spite of the quarantine.
This restriction of movement is achieved through guarded gates which separate the various areas. There are nine gates in total. Six main gates:
- Merchants' Gate, locked for the duration of the game
- Maribor Gate, locked for the duration of the game
- Miller's Gate
- Gate to Old Vizima
- Gate to New Vizima
- North Gate, locked for the duration of the game
Three internal gates also restrict movement between areas of the city, at least for parts of the game:
- Gates connecting the Trade and Temple Quarters
- two gates to enter the cemetery, from the Trade or Συνοικία του Ναούs
- A map showing all the gates can be found here.
During the Πρόλογος, Κεφάλαιο I and Κεφάλαιο IV, the city proper is inaccessible, but the main story takes place within its confines. The city and surroundings are divided into the following locations:
- Συνοικία του Ναού — Κατηγορία II, III and V
- Εμπορικό Κέντρο — Κατηγορία III
- Royal Quarter — never accessible

- Lying where important trade routes converge, Temeria's capital sits picturesquely on the shore of Lake Vizima in the valley of the Ismena River, a tributary of the Pontar. The city is divided into four teeming quarters, which are home to thousands and host travelers from all corners of the world. The Royal Palace and court are both found here, and the city boasts many markets, temples, forges, shops, banks, workshops, inns and brothels. Since our story does not concern Vizima directly, I will end my description here and urge those interested to consult other sources.'
