The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a huge world. I want to impress people by comparing Hyrule's size to that of a real-world location. Has anyone estimated the size of Hyrule?

1 Answer 1


The BOTW map is ~602 km or ~372 miles.

This gif/video makes a size comparison between other LoZ maps (and even Skyrim).

Again, this isn't exact, but using measurements in the game (even using Link's height of ~1.7m/5'7"*) we can approximate.

* Again, this is an approximation - Source

  • Hrm, saying "Hyrule is as big as Manhattan" isn't as satisfying as I'd hoped. Well, thank you!
