Glasgow is better known as a major industrial and engineering center of Great Britain than a tourist city. However, it is not for nothing that the name “Glasgow” has its roots in the Gaelic “Glaschu”, which means “”green valley””. Indeed, the city is surrounded by parks and picturesque green spaces.
Like any ancient Scottish city, Glasgow has several significant architectural monuments of the Middle Ages. But, nevertheless, the main construction was carried out during the industrial boom of the XVIII-XIX centuries. The authentic Merchant City district is a witness to the unprecedented rise of the urban economy in those days.
A trip to Glasgow is a great opportunity to learn more about the history of Scotland, walk through the corridors of one of the oldest European universities and admire the slender features of the architectural style of Scottish Gothic.
