Often referred to as “the Athens of the North” because of its rich intellectual tradition in the arts, humanities, and sciences, Edinburgh is the second most visited city in the United Kingdom after London.

Robert Louis Stevenson, a native son, wrote: “Edinburgh is what Paris ought to be.” The capital city of Scotland and home to two recent British Prime Minister, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, this city of half a million people traces its origins to the Bronze Age and today still houses some of the finest examples of Medieval and Georgian architecture in Europe and the United Kingdom
