Scotland's capital city is a fascinating amalgam of history, architecture, culture and much more. The dramatic castle, the elegant New Town, the high tenaments of the Old Town. The literary heritage. The Festivals that attract performers from all over the world. The new Parliament bringing more development into the city. The rivalry with Glasgow and the European leanings. All this contribute to the makeup of a city that has reinvented itself many times.
