Athens of the North
World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere. Watched over by its iconic symbol, the Edinburgh Castle, this city manages to seamlessly blend medieval relics, Georgian grandeur, and modern living. In this town, medieval palaces stand right next to modern buildings, and Gothic churches rub shoulders with awe-inspiring contemporary museums and galleries. Scotland’s pulsing nightlife center, the city is often called the Athens of the North. Edinburgh’s world-famous cultural festivals are just a small part of its extensive special-events program. Often cited as the UK’s most desirable city to live in, Edinburgh is not only a city of explosive energy and crowded pubs, but it is also a center of high culture, fine art, and cutting-edge science. Make Edinburgh central to your United Kingdom travel plans using our United Kingdom trip site.
