Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

Edinburgh, United Kingdom is the capital of Scotland and is nicknamed the Athens of the North. It is known as Europe’s festival capital, holding all different types of festivals year round. There are so many things to do and explore in Edinburgh, from castles and museums to gardens and markets.

There is an old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. While looking through these pictures of Edinburgh, I realized it’s probably better for all readers to see and enjoy these pictures than reading about it. Let me guide you through these pictures:

The Our Dynamic Earth is an exhibit and museum that is most definitely worth visiting. This place, with free admission, offers a unique 3D AND 4D experience that you will never forget. The museum teaches its visitors of the history of our planet, the present and even the future.

The Edinburgh Castle was erected in the 7th century on an extinct volcano. This castle is an extremely historic place, not to mention absolutely beautiful! It is the connecting monument in between Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town.

This is a scene you would find yourself encased in when you visit one of Edinburgh's many festivals!

The Royal Mile is located right in the heart of Edinburgh and is the center for public gatherings and the main place for an amazing local shopping spree.

As I'm sure most of you know already, Scottish Whiskey is famously known all around the world. Trying one of these authentic whiskeys is an opportunity you most definitely cannot miss when you're there!

Edinburgh is a beautiful, unique gem that is proud of its rich, long history and of its magnificence. What do you think of Edinburgh?
