Poster advertising the bank
The Vivaldis are a family of dwarves who set up one of the finest banks in the known world, the Vivaldi Bank, with branches in most major cities in the Northern Kingdoms.
Branches[edit | edit source]
- Murivel, not definitely a branch of the Vivaldi bank, but likely.
- Vizima, possibly only in the game.
Associated quests[edit | edit source]
In Vergen, Geralt meets Igor Vivaldi, an employee of Vivaldi's bank on business in town to check on the local mine's profitability. He tells Geralt that the each of the bank's agents have been given instructions that the witcher is to receive unlimited credit.
In The Witcher computer game[edit | edit source]
Like any large city, Vizima also has a branch of the dwarf-owned Vivaldi and Sons Bank. It is located in a sturdy building with thick stone walls. Guards armed to the teeth watch the armoured safes, while wealthy clients can count on discreet, professional service. The bank is renowned and so its reputation did not suffer when rumours began circulating of a hostile takeover. Apparently, the bank's owner was having financial problems, and an anonymous investor took advantage. The Vizima branch was run by Golan Vivaldi until it was taken over by humans, while the Novigrad branch is run by Vimme Vivaldi.
There also happens to be a second entrance to the bank. It is located in the storehouse next door.
