Nicknamed as 'Athens of the North', Edinburgh oozes beauty at every turn, with hilly landscapes, flower gardens, trees, rivers and lochs. Water of Leith - a trout stream, Arthur's Seat - an extinct volcano, Calton Hill - a spectacular viewpoint, and Duddingston Loch - a bird sanctuary, are just some of the stimulants that make Edinburgh an incredible feast for the eyes.

  • History of Edinburgh

    Edinburgh is the splendid capital city of Scotland, which is a regal European country with a glorious and eventful past. This Scottish city has been a significant part of the country since several centuries as it served as a political and educational centre. UNESCO has awarded Edinburgh with several accolades, which include its addition to the World Heritage List and recognition as the first City of Literature. Dotted with grand castles, royal mansions and war grounds, the city has a quaint charm of its own. The city earns immense fame for its namesake university, which was founded in 1583 and has become one of the finest centres of studies across the globe. After the Act of Union was passed in 1707, Scotland and England were unified politically, as a result of which the political power was transferred from Edinburgh to Westminster. During the Victorian Era, rapid industrialisation started changing the face of the city, and it became an important site of the industrial revolution. As the 20th century came to an end, Edinburgh had established itself as a financial capital. In present times, this prosperous and beautiful city presents a perfect melange of classic and contemporary elements.
