The Emerald City (sometimes called the City of Emeralds ) is the capital city of the fictional Land of Oz in L. Frank Baum 's Oz books , first described in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900).

Located in the center of the Land of Oz, the Emerald City is the end of the famous yellow brick road , which starts in Munchkin Country . In the center of the Emerald City is the Royal Palace of Oz.

The Oz books describe the Emerald City as being built of green glass, emeralds , and other jewels. In the earlier books, it was described as completely green , but in later ones, green was merely the predominating color; the buildings were decorated with gold as well, and people added other colors to their costumes.
