Ildrad Zinthys (elven; Eldradd Cinthys), known as the City of Bridges, is the largest city in Tir'Ein. While the capital of the kingdom is Aelwyd, those without elven blood are forbidden from entering. Ildrad Zinthys serves as a diplomatic capital with foreign relations taking center stage in the city's politics.

Located deep in the north east of Ghoper Forest, Ildrad Zinthys holds the forest's beauty without the dangers found further in. The city sprawls across a section of massive mawrion tree roots creating a city scape that dramatically rises and falls necessitating the many bridges that have made the city famous. It is often considered one of the most beautiful cities in Nora. It has stood for over three thousand years and it continues to thrive. The city has the largest population of elves inside any city walls.

The city is extremely tolerant of animals roaming within. Many druids and their rangers keep animal companions that mingle with wizard familiars. Wild animals even scurry in and out of the city and all seem to behave with a strange calmness when amidst the metropolis.

Notable events include the Solvos city dance, Spirit Night (Malphir 25th), Gryth Day (Galven 30th) and the Ezaban Festival of Life (Kalmnis 16th).
