Edinburgh is a place visited by 13 million tourists a year. Which is the capital of Scotland. The city was founded by the Romans in the 1st century AD It has a population of 500,000. A city that offers a lot of history and very famous and visited monuments, such as a walk along the Royal Mile or Princes Street. Or with an ascent to Arthur's throne or Calton Hill. It is definitely worth noting the Castle, where you can see the crown jewels.

Edinburgh

The capital of Scotland

Edinburgh is a place visited by 13 million tourists a year. Which is the capital of Scotland. The city was founded by the Romans in the 1st century AD It has a population of 500,000. A city that offers a lot of history and very famous and visited monuments, such as a walk along the Royal Mile or Princes Street. Or with an ascent to Arthur's throne or Calton Hill. It is definitely worth noting the Castle, where you can see the crown jewels. You can all get to the city by air. There are several ways to get to the city. Public transport, which is interesting here, buses have only one door. Then another Taxi. There is a variant of renting a car, but it does not make sense to walk through the city. parking and parking are prohibited everywhere. Our route in Edinburgh, which comes out for 1 day, is. Get on the Royal Mile, which leads to the castle. Admission to the castle is £ 17 in advance. You can walk through the castle on your own and there is a lot of it. So even passing in speed takes almost 2 hours. The biggest attraction are the crown jewels. Here, too many are surprised by the great attention to the First World War. In any case, there is a wonderful view of the whole city from the castle. From here we walk to the other end of the Royal Mile, where we stop at St Giles' Cathedral. It's not as big as they have in France. The street is very busy, there are a lot of souvenir shops, they can be seen by bagpipers and when there is a taste, there are also pubs. We tried The Miter. Holyrood Palace was waiting for us at the end of the Mile. We didn't go inside, it would be another 12 pounds. This is common in Scotland. Culture, education are paid for, so even for a small thing one can expect to want an amount. From here, but we're already climbing Calton Hill. Where can you see Arthur's throne. I consider Calton Hill an icon of Edinburgh. Spend a beautiful afternoon here. Then we return to Princes street where its dominant feature is the Scott Monument. This ends our one-day pilgrimage to Edi and we set off to rent a car
