SCOTLAND ~ Edinburgh - UNESCO ~

... Beautiful Edinburgh view from Salisbury Crags... Salisbury Crags are a number of cliffs in Holyrood Park... Holyrood Palace, Scottish Parliament Building, Calton Hill, the Castle and much of the city can be seen from there... one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK and often considered as one of the most lively cities in Europe... steeped in history...  renowned for its heritage, culture and festivals... with lovely matching Sottish Holyrood Place stamp... Big Thanks Andrene! (✿◠‿◠)  Hope you have a wonderful stay with family (the most important people in our life💖...)

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland since the 15thC and it is located in central eastern Scotland, near the Firth of Forth (the estuary of several Scottish rivers), close to the North Sea.

It has two distinct areas: the Old Town, dominated by a medieval fortress; and the neoclassical New Town, whose development from the 18thC onwards had a far-reaching influence on European urban planning. The harmonious juxtaposition of these two contrasting historic areas, each with many important buildings, is what gives the city its unique character.
