Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

A castle on one end of the city, a palace on the other,
and a mountain touching the sky at the centre, Edinburgh packs unparalleled grandeur and scope into an intimate city layout. A bilateral Gothic labyrinth of a city, Edinburgh’s present is as vibrant as its rich history.

Edinburgh is a festival center without compare.

Come in winter and let its Christmas markets, Hogmanay New Years, Burns Night celebrations put you in a holiday mood—or brace yourself for the giddy wide-ranging artistic chaos that commandeers the city all August long during its famous contemporary theater festival, the Fringe.
