City 17, outside the train station.


"Welcome. Welcome to City 17. You have chosen, or been chosen, to relocate to one of our finest remaining urban centers. I thought so much of City 17 that I elected to establish my administration here, in the Citadel so thoughtfully provided by our benefactors. I've been proud to call City 17 my home. And so, whether you are here to stay, or passing through on your way to parts unknown - welcome to City 17. It's safer here."
―Wallace Breen

City 17 was a grand city in an unknown Eastern European country, that is most prior to the Seven Hour War. Later taken over by the Combine, it was their main headquarters on Earth. Dominated by the imposing Citadel and surrounded by the desolate wasteland, it was the only location of Half-Life 2: Episode One, and one of two major locations in Half-Life 2.
