Edinburgh has been the Scottish capital since the 15th century. It has two distinct areas; the Old Town, dominated by Edinburgh Castle and its medieval street layout and the planned neoclassical New Town with its beautiful Georgian streets and buildings. The harmonious juxtaposition of these two contrasting areas, each with many important buildings, is what gives Edinburgh its unique character. These two areas, the Old Town and the New Town, are separated by the broad, green swath of Princes Street Gardens.
The New Town was the solution to the problem of an increasingly crowded city and was constructed from 1767 onwards. The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Thistle Street and Rose Street were named after the national emblems of Scotland and England.


The city hosts the annual Edinburgh International Festival which is one of many events that run between the end of July and early September each year. The festival comprises the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Edinburgh Film Festival.
Edinburgh has many museums, art galleries and visitor attraction. These include Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland, Real Mary King’s Close, Palace of Holyroodhouse, Royal Botanic Gardens, Scottish National Gallery, the newly refurbished Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Greyfriar’s Bobby Memorial, Scottish National gallery of Modern Art, National Library of Scotland, Museum of Childhood and many more.

Edinburgh Zoo, covering 82 acres on Corstorphine Hill, is the second most popular paid tourist attraction in Scotland and currently home to two giant pandas, Tian Tian and Yang Guang, on loan from the People's Republic of China.

Edinburgh is also home to The Royal Yacht Britannia, decommissioned in 1997 and now a five-star visitor attraction and evening events venue permanently berthed at Ocean Terminal.
