Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the lively and fantastic capital of Scotland, a wonderful city of contrasting styles of architecture, from the medieval Old Town, to the carefully planned Georgian New Town. The city is dominated by the fortifications of Edinburgh Castle which date back to the 11th century. Many festivals take place in Edinburgh and the castle; The Military Tattoo, with performances by military bands from all over the world, and the world famous annual Edinburgh Festival, where almost every street is taken over by performers, theater troupes, and musicians.
