Edinburgh - United Kingdom

Edinburgh is the Capital city of Scotland (a constituent country of the United Kingdom) and Scotland's Second Largest City. It is Famous for its Castle and Various other pieces Architecture. Anyway these are just some pictures I found on Flickr (hope the people don't mind). Tell me what you think and feel free to post your own Images

Any new shops in Princes street? the last time I visited Edinburgh was nearly 3 years ago, when I was living in that fantastic city where half of my heart remains...

I've been there many times for work purposes and I love it. When I am there I am in the Leith docks area (traditionally, not the nicest area of Edinburgh, but nonetheless, it is rapidly being re-developed with modern condominiums and shopping areas being built everywhere).

The rest of Edinburgh is simply fantastic. I also find the people much friendlier than the snobby Londoners....

Here r some more pics I pulled off the Amazing European Cities thread:

A city punctuated by dead volcanoes, the castle with the medieval city on one side and the 'New Town' on the other, a vast stretch of Georgian town planning.

for scale, can you see the little man?




the 300 year old 'New Town:




the medieval old Town (pic below shows the entry bridge into this highrise labyrinth of ancient streets perched on the hill):








the gigantic Forth Bridge, (bright red):


the Edinburgh Festival, the worlds largest arts festival:




Legendary New Years Eve celebrations, one of the best in the world: Hogmonay







the military tattoo:

Places I discovered during my year in Edinburgh...

Stockbridge area, nice neighbourhood area with shops and nice restaurants (I love Patisserie Florentin and the Pizza Express branch with nice views to Water of Leith) It's a small walk off the city centre and the Botanic Garden (another nice area).

South Queensferry it's also a must! Stunning views of the Firth of Forth and the Forth Rail Bridge.

From Dean Village (near the west end) to Ravelston near the area where I lived, it's a very nice walk, you can visit the Dean Galleries.

Cramond, an off site neighbourhood with views of the Firth of Forth and farer views of the bridges.

Morningside it's also very nice for its shops and lively atmosphere, there are also many bars and pubs.

Enjoy Edinburgh for me please!!!

David Hume wrote that the enlightenment splendor of the new town compares to anything in Paris or Vienna, and I would have to agree. The contrast between the new city and the brooding, atmospheric medieval city is extraordinary.
