Edinburgh is the capital and second largest city in Scotland (after Glasgow). Administratively it constitutes along with the neighborhood region of the City of Edinburgh. It is situated on the banks of the Firth of Forth. The city has been the capital of Scotland since 1437 and is now the seat of the Scottish Parliament, which was restored in 1999. Both the old and the new town was included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1995.

Edinburgh is a wonderful city and a great tourist destination, especially for weekend tourism or shorter trips.

By accessing the Royal Mile, you will experience Edinburgh at its best. A great park set around Edinburgh Castle (Old Town) and Princess Street (New Town).

Edinburgh's main tourist attraction is undoubtedly the city's many festivals and events, often in conjunction with Edinburgh Castle. Edinburgh Castle is an ancient fortress that is Scotland's most lucrative tourist attraction. It sits atop a volcanic rock and the historic old town below it. Edinburgh Castle include the venue for the Edinburgh Military Tatto.

Between all the shops in Princess street, it is necessary to stop in one of Edinburgh's many pubs, cafes or restaurants. A visit to Scotland should for example always include beer and haggis, the Scots' national dish consisting of a good spicy mix the city's many festivals and eventsof sheep intestines mixed with ground beef.

People in Edinburgh are so cheerful, and entitled "Europe's best destinations' then they might now something to live up to.
