Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland is charming with an outstanding history and diverse yet delightful architecture. it is very famous for owning Scottish Pubs with a warm welcoming locals. the city is also well known for it's Castle, Alcoholic Beverages(particularly whiskey) and beautiful surroundings.

The city is very pleasant, because not only it has a ravishing background, but also it is very green, having many parks. You can feel the cities Scottish influence and aura, no matter which part of the city you are, and If you want to have fun, Edinburgh is a great place to be.
