Travel to Scotland
Fly to Edinburgh
Scotland is a region full of charm, beautiful narrow streets, green gardens, fairytale landscapes, folk traditions, friendly people and delicious food. The land of Sir Walter Scott is as legendary as his books.
Scotland knows how to seduce a tourist. We can almost certainly name the Scottish capital Edinburgh as one of the most special cities in Europe. It is also called "Auld Reekie" which means "old chimney" because of the large number of chimneys on the old rooftops of Edinburgh. Thanks to the chimneys the citizens survive rather damp and rainy weather in autumn and winter.
What amazing things can you try only in Edinburgh?
- Learn step-by-step how whisky is made in the Scotch Whisky Experience, which boasts the world’s largest collection of whisky. You end your visit to the museum with a Scotch whisky tasting session.
- Soak in the Gothic architecture. They say "Edinburgh has a Gothic soul", the whole city consisting of buildings and streets that give the impression of it being the city of Robert Luis Stevenson’s books. The most prominent street is the Royal Mile measuring 1,814.2 metres in length, which takes you from the Scottish parliament to the castle. It is the most impressive architectural area of the city along with the Cathedral of San Gil. And of course, the Holyroodhouse Palace, the official residence of the Queen of England, will captivate you with its style.
- Enjoy the most romantic but at the same time most legendary views from Edinburgh Castle. Do not miss seeing the modern cannon being fired at one p.m. by the General of Artillery. This tradition has existed since 1861. In addition, you can see the genuine royal jewels that serve as the oldest attributes of Christianity: the crown, sword and sceptre and, of course, a visit to St. Margaret’s Chapel is a must.
- Return to your childhood by visiting the Museum of Childhood. This unique museum displays collections of the oldest toys in Europe.
- Eat authentic Scottish delicacies in Grassmarket, the main square since medieval times. You cannot leave without trying the haggis - the traditional Scottish dish consisting of lamb and sheep offal with herbs and onions. If you're on holiday you can surely allow yourself to sit in an old bar for a strong Scottish breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, ham and tripe pudding.
- See the North Sea when you visit the 14th century Dunottar Castle.
- Visit Loch Ness in person. You can check out the existence of the monster in one of the most picturesque sites in the Highlands of Scotland. Folk legend says that the famous monster lives in the dark waters of the loch. Let's see if it's true!
