Edinburgh, the cultural capital of Scotland, is a city of astonishing contrasts. Here, you will come across crowds of trendy youths out clubbing and groups of bagpipe players, wearing the traditional kilt.
The climate, which is sometimes less than pleasant, has never fazed the Scottish people . You will always find plenty of activity in the city streets. Edinburgh prides itself on hosting numerous artistic events throughout the year, such as the Fringe Festival, famous the world over. Scheduled to take place in August each year, it brings together over 500 shows of all kinds, attracting thousands of visitors to the city. Whilst discovering this modern and multicultural capital, the number of historical sites that you can visit will also captivate you, such as the ancient stronghold of Edinburgh Castle, Scotland’s most famous landmark which looks down majestically over the city. Finally, the rest of this country with its lakes and its Highlands, is waiting to be discovered, and is as splendid and magical as attested in its legends.
