About Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and its also as one of the prettiest cities in Europe. Edinburgh is not only famous for its stunning landscape and rocky hills, but also because of the scenic views of the shimmering ocean. The city skyline is made up of buildings from different periods and endless cliffs.

It is also considered one of the most lively cities in Europe. It is a city that urges you to explore it on foot, through narrow streets, passageways, stairs, and hidden churchyards. Be sure to explore away from the main streets.

A visit here will definitely be worth it, considering the numerous things you can do and see. There's a lot you can do here with year-round festivals, exciting nightlife, and an entertaining arts scene. Edinburgh never falls short of interesting travel ventures for tourists.
