Edinburgh - One City, Many Discoveries.
Edinburgh contains a little bit of every aspect of Scotland. It looks that all the single parts: culture, architecture, traditions, and history are put into this spectacular city. In other words, Edinburgh is like a historic distillation of all Scottish things and a keeper of the old culture that includes political and cultural focus of the society, together with the national identity. More than 2000 years of British history are written across the face of Edinburgh.
In this dynamic capital, buildings do not overpower the amazing landscape of the hills and crags across the horizons. However, the architecture of Scottish heritage presents its own charm. The most visited Scotland's attraction is Edinburgh castle standing still and firm from the 12th century. In addition, the Gothic architecture chedevre St. Giles' Cathedral must be seen. Inside the cathedral many fine features and memorials can be found. Don't skip "the Royal Mile" - epitome of old Edinburgh, made up of four linked streets (Castlehill, Lawnmarket, High Street and Canongate). Walk along and discover the best of Edinburgh.
Visiting Edinburgh between April to June? Don't pass by the Royal Botanic Garden. A colorful array of plants and flowers can be found: from orchids to palms. Spend some time in the kingdom of perfumes. The beauty can be seen not only in the city but also in the shops. George and Princes streets are the famous ones among shopoholics. Distinctive Scottish cuisine and its dishes (wild salmon and Aberdeen Angus beef) will require your attention as well. Little by little discover everything that Edinburgh is ready to offer.
The city's stonebuildings have seen a lot: Scotland's resistance against England's domination, cultural and human achievements, as well as misery. Only few other capitals seem to reflect the history and culture of their countries so intensively. Take a journey through the streets of time.
