City in the Sky is the seventh dungeon in Twilight Princess.
Entrance to the City
Unlike the previous six dungeons in the game, City in the Sky is not set in Hyrule, but in the heavens, where another civilization can be found. When exploring the high altitudes and braving the gusting winds of the City, it is best to use caution near ledges, grapples, thin walkways, and towers (by using a slow and steady pace); where wind blows, Link can use the Iron Boots to avoid being sent to the world below. After Link obtains the second Clawshot, exploration is made easier, as the young hero can now climb between walls, hold on to Peahats, and moving walls to advance. The city runs on many ancient and complex machines that are far more advanced than anything found in Hyrule. These machines use the power of the wind to its full extent. Wind is the fuel of the city; it powers every major machine that Link comes across.

- The ambiance of the City in the Sky is somewhat reminiscent of the strings portion in the Forest Temple theme in Ocarina of Time.
