- "Many visitors come to Bhujerba to enjoy the open-air parks with spectacular views only available to those who live in the sky. Very rarely does anyone fall from the skycity, and curiously enough, not a single death has been reported to have resulted from such an occurrence to date."

Thành phố trên không Bhujerba (空中都市ビュエルバ Kūchū Toshi Byueruba, Không trung đô thị Bhujerba) là một địa danh ở thế giới Ivalice trong Final Fantasy XII. A floating city, it tries to maintain neutrality at all times, but recent events have forced its residents to ally with Archadia.

Bhujerba is located in the Sky Continent of Dorstonis, above the Naldoan Sea. A floating city-state, Bhujerba thrives solely on the export of magicite mined in the nearby Lhusu Mines. Originally founded by Moogles, who were the first pioneers of airship travel, Bhujerba became an airship docking port and expeditions discovered more magicite mines, increasing Bhujerba's revenue. During the age of the Galtean Alliance, House Ondore took over the administration and initiated a system to control the magicite mining activities; by closing exhausted mines to let the magicite recover and opening new mines elsewhere. This guarantees continuous production of magicite. It is rumored that should the magicite supply be exhausted, Bhujerba and the rest of the Sky Continent would descend to the surface; these rumors are yet to be proven true.
Ruled by Marquis Halim Ondore IV, Bhujerba tries to maintain its neutrality amongst all nations. It was even the mediator between Archadia and Dalmasca when they signed their peace treaty. However, they have recently entered into a formal alliance with Archadia, although the Archadians have no real power over Bhujerba. In reality, though, Bhujerba has allied with the resistance, in hopes of bringing down the Archadian Empire.
The people of Bhujerba speak with an accent similar to "Indian English". Many of their terms are actual words from the actual Sanskrit language. The most common word is Bhadra, which is a formal address, not unlike the English use of Sir/Madam or Mr/Ms/Mrs. The dialect is also seen, when approaching the guides of the city, as they will have the title of Parijanah, which fittingly means "guide".
Other Bhujerban words:
- Amba - Mother
- Bhadra - Good
- Hanta - Great!
- Kah - Who
- Kastam - Alas
- Madhu - A wine beverage, is Honey in Sanskrit
- Murkha - Fool
- Parijanah - Guide
- Raksas - Monster
- Sainikah - Soldier
- Svagatam - Welcome
The party arrive at Bhujerba on Balthier's airship after learning that Penelo has been kidnapped by Ba'Gamnan and kept hostage in the Lhusu Mines. As the party exit the aerodrome they see a lot of Imperial Soldiers about, looking for somebody, but turns out it isn't the party. Outside the aerodrome the party speak of going to the mines and are met by a boy calling himself Lamont, who has overheard their conversation. He, also, is wanting to go into the mines, and reluctantly Balthier lets him join.
The party make their way to the deep end of the mines, but they're not the only ones. Judge Ghis and Marquis Ondore are also in the mines, conversing of the secret affair Bhujerba has with Archadia, providing the Draklor Laboratory with magicite. The party make their way to the end of the mines and find Ba'Gamnan, who has already let Penelo go.
Penelo, frightened and lost, stumbles upon the Judge and the Marquis on her way out of the mines. Ghis is furious of having discovered an outsider in the mines full of Empire's secrets, but 'Lamont', who reveals himself as Larsa Ferrinas Solidor of the ruling house of Archadia, comes to her aid.
After the party learn that Penelo has been taken to Marquis Ondore's mansion they come up with a plan to get in by spreading rumours that Basch is still alive. They make their way in, and find that Penelo, as well as Judge Ghis and Princess Ashe have boarded the Dreadnought Leviathan. The Marquis calls the guard and the group is captured, sending them on-board the imperial airship, so the party may have a chance to save their friends.
The party manage to escape with Penelo and Ashe and make their way back to Bhujerba to Marquis Ondore's. Ashe wants to claim Dalmasca's throne, but can't do so with no proof of her lineage. She then decides to go and seek out the Dawn Shard, but the Marquis does not support her plans. So Ashe decides to steal Balthier's airship, but is caught in doing so. Ashe manages to convince Balthier to kidnap her by promising him the treasures within Tomb of Raithwall, and so the party leave Bhujerba.
