Living history on every street corners
If you are interested in the fascinating history of Edinburgh, this city has a lot to offer you. Edinburgh is made up of two parts: The Old Town, which has retained its medieval character, and the New Town, which dates back to the Age of the Enlightenment. The Old Town is dominated by dark stone houses and cobbled streets. In the past, this part sank in the waste poured into the gutters through the windows of the apartments and clouds of smoke.
