Edinburgh City Guide

Scotland's major city models London in that it seems oddly removed from its hinterland. Its architectural diversity, its successful mixture of cutting-edge modernity and traditions ranging back to medieval times is fascinating indeed.
The architecture ranges from medieval remains to splendid Victorian houses. The city's skyline is dominated by its castle spectacularly situated on top of an extinct volcano. If you follow the Royal Mile from Edinburgh castle to Palace of Holyroodhouse you get a glimpse of Edinburgh's unique architectural substance and structure.
The city's nightlife center is 'Grassmarket' complete with numerous restaurants and pubs. The nightlife is dominated by the high number of students at Edinburgh University.
10 minutes outside the city center you can find Edinburgh zoo, the largest zoo in Scotland.

The best time to go is in August when the whole city overflows with visitors and artists performing at Scotland's most renowned festival: official Edinburgh festival invites the world's best performers of music, dance and drama to the city. Some other festivals have evolved around this festival and take place at the same time: Edinburgh Film Festival, Jazz Festival, Book Festival and Festival Fringe. For the entirety of August the whole city is throbbing with shows, exhibitions and performers.
