Scotland is a place whose capital is Edinburgh which is located in central eastern Scotland, near the Firth of Forth, close to the North Sea. The place is very admirable by its spectacular rocks, rustic buildings and large collection of medieval and classic architecture, including numerous stone decorations, it is usually consider as the one of the loveliest places in Europe. Scottish people called it Auld Reekie, Edina, Athens of the North and Britain’s Other Eye. Edinburgh has beautiful location along with the lovely cites it has. The view falls on all sides – green hills, the hint of the blue sea, the silhouettes of the buildings and the red cliffs. It is a city that calls you to explore it by foot – narrow streets, passageways, stairs and hidden church yards on every step will pull you away from the main streets. The city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK. It is the capital of Scotland and home to many tourist attractions. A visit here will be well worth it, considering the numerous things you can do and see. Most of the structures in the Old Town have remained in their original form over the years. Charming medieval relics are plenty in this section of the city. In contrast, orderly Georgian terraces line the streets of the New Town. The general urban scenery is a blend of ancient structures and modern architecture, which gives the city a unique character. In 1995, the Old Town was listed as a UNESCO Heritage Site. With year round festivals, a throbbing nightlife and an entertaining arts scene, Edinburgh never falls short of interesting travel ventures for tourists. Edinburgh is a city of literature – it was the first city to be called the UNESCO city of Literature. Edinburgh is a beautiful city filled with stunning geology. Its diverse landscape is worth seeing, as it transforms from the volcanic Pentland Hills in the south, to the seaside resort of Portobello in the East. To get a birds-eye view of the city, you can scale Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano, which is one of the most popular attractions.
