Barovia is the name given to the realm ruled by Strahd von Zarovich. It is a small region which can be completely traversed in several days on foot. It is characterized as the valley between the Balinok Mountains, especially Mount Baratok to the north and Mount Ghakis to the south.

The climate, so far as the Outlanders have experienced it, is cold and dreary, even snowy in the northwest. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, however it never seems to break clear of thick cloud cover or other odd atmospheric factors which result in a never-quite-daylight feeling and give the daytime sky a variably grey, purple, or even green or orange cast.
Barovia contains the eponymous Village of Barovia, the town of Vallaki, and the village of Kresk, none of which is especially populous. Strahd’s Castle Ravenloft overlooks the Village of Barovia and can be seen atop its mountain terrace from much of the region.
