The old town of Edinburgh
The old town retains its medieval architecture and many buildings from the time of the Reformation, with large blocks between the streets to host flea markets. Here you will find the Royal Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh University and numerous underground streets. The Royal Mile, a historic road network is the most centrally located in Edinburgh’s Old Town atmosphere that combines Gothic, medieval buildings, churches and museums, and impressive buildings and all kinds of shops. At George Street you will find many shops and the Grassmarket, the famous neighborhood of the old city that was once the place of execution, now is the center of night life.
It is the largest New Year’s Eve revelry in the world. And because when it comes to entertainment, the Scots are not joking, are taken care of first and second day of the year a holiday. The scepter keeps the Edinburgh course. Imagine streets flooded by thousands of people getting wild, musical tents at various points in the city, huge parades of people with torches, plenty of food and drink, street performers, jugglers and giant screens.
According to estimates, there were once 3,000 castles in Scotland. To admire 17 of them, you can get the tour Castle Trail taking place in the area around Aberdeen.
