Helgen is the village that the first missions, and opening gameplay take place in. It is attacked by a dragon as soon as you begin the game, decimating the city, and making exploration of it's previous majesty impossible.

Helgen was known as "The Gateway to the North", as any travelers coming from the south would have to travel through Helgen before entering the entirety of Skyrim.
