My friend. Welcome to Moenia. The starport is a bustling center of commerce and community. And the swamp is an endless source of adventure.
Bertos Goodner, to a spacer[6]

Moenia was a large city on Naboo known for its importance as a booming artists‘ retreat.


Protected by the dense swamplands of the Gungan Swamp, Moenia was an ideal city for Naboo’s educated elite. The city boasted Naboo’s highest concentration of successful authors, artists and musicians. It was also the training ground for many of Naboo’s elected officials, and included some of the galaxy’s most respected universities.[3] Inhabitants of Moenia also encompassed many merchants and Gungan sympathizers.[4]

Moenia usually had a misty gloom about it. While inside the city, one could rarely tell if it was day or night.[1] Perhaps this was why Moenia chose to host the Galactic Moon Festival.[7]


During the Invasion of Naboo, Moenia was conquered by the Trade Federation, and its population was relocated to the Detention Camp Six, outside the city.[4]

During the Galactic Civil War, the Galactic Empire viewed Moenia as little more than an artist’s retreat and virtually ignored all activity in the city. This allowed for the formation of a small but influential group of political idealists sympathetic to the Rebellion. Publicly, Moenia’s leadership would support the Empire, but they surreptitiously funded Alliance activities, welcomed refugees from worlds under Imperial siege, and arranged meetings between Rebel agents and powerful political figures from throughout the galaxy. While the peaceful residents of Moenia would rarely take up arms against the Empire, their underground support of the Alliance proved to be a valuable asset.[3] After the Battle of Yavin, the city eventually became a Rebel Alliance stronghold.[5]

The Aerie Casino was located on the city’s outskirts. A grand opening of this casino occurred in 1 ABY.[2]


Residents of or visitors to the city in the time after the Battle of Yavin included Dilvin Lormurojo, Borvo’s guard, C-3TC, Ronin Lightrunner,[1] and V3-FX.[8] Among the city’s more famous patrons was the famed poet, philologist, and scholar Ebenn Q3 Baobab.[1] Borvo the Hutt was also known to relax in the local cantina. From there, he managed his own vault just outside the city. This vault was actually a large underground bunker, rumored to have an acklay and rancor guarding its secrets.[9]
