The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Edinburgh
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Edinburgh is an ancient bastion, shrouded in mists and shrouded in legends. It has been the site of great historical events on many occasions. The memory of the legendary independence fighter William Wallace – “Braveheart” – is still preserved here, the images of the beautiful chivalric novel “Ivanhoe” live in the austere castles, and the stone Walter Scott pensively leafing through a book against the background of Gothic domes.
The unbroken spirit of Edinburgh is strengthened in the piercing melodies of Scottish bagpipes and makes the traveller sink deeper and deeper into the stratum of time. Through the centuries, the tourist can see prominent Scotsmen in the National Portrait Gallery, the ruins of Holyrood Abbey are mute witnesses to the former power of the church, and the walls of Edinburgh Castle still remember the last Scottish monarch.
