Athens of the North

Even after a second visit, I still think Edinburgh is one of the prettiest cities in Europe, and rightly deserves it’s nickname ‘Athens of the North’. You find everything there! One can dive into the Scottisch history by visiting the castle and Holyrood Palace, shop till you drop in New Town or the Royal Mile, enjoy nature in the Royal Botanic Garden, the Zoo or by hiking up Arthur’s Seat, or visit one of the many (mostly free) museums, like the National Museum of Scotland or the National Galleries.   Still not convinced? Have a look at some pictures then!
