There is not any canon map of the World nor the Continent provided in the novels. Numerous fans and adaptations attempted at making their own, and were said by Andrzej Sapkowski to be "more or less correct". The author himself has a map based on Stanislav Komárek's variant which he later improved, but he decided not to publish it because the world is constantly evolving in his mind.

Polish website Edit

The earliest map

The very first maps of the Continent were created by editors of the author's Polish website. Several variants were made, with the earliest ones having such unusual features as Gelibol located in Nazair or duchy of Craite in East March. The final version were created around the time Baptism of Fire was released in Poland and included corrections based on Sapkowski's notes.

The corrected map was later used in Wiedźmin: Gra Wyobraźni. A heavily modified variant of this map were created for 2nd Edition of Wiedźmin: Gra Wyobraźni.

Stanislav Komárek Edit

Komarek map

Stanislav Komárek's map of Northern Realms

A different approach was taken by Stanislav Komárek, Sapkowski's translator and associate. Based on the author's notes it was said to be the more faithful, but still had some mistakes (or, rather, elements which were later changed by Sapkowski during writing of the Saga).

The map was later translated and appeared in some editions of The Witcher Saga.

CD Projekt's The Witcher franchise Edit

World map

World map for The Witcher game based on Komárek's and Arkadia maps

The map for The witcher game series were created in a joint work of Arkadia's map creators and editors of early Polish Wiki, with a few advices of Andrzej Sapkowski himself.

Known map errors Edit

Geographic borders Edit

Netflix's The Witcher Edit

During the production of Netflix's The Witcher two maps were created. The first one, by Michał Niewiara, was shown by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich in her tweet and later attached to the newest Polish edition of The Witcher Saga. The second one has been created by the prop department and intended to be less acurate but more artistic, as it could be used within the world. Its animated version is used on the show's official site.
