- the capital city of Scotland

Edinburgh  is the  second largest city ( after Glasgow ) in Scotland and lies in the SE of Scotland on the south shore of the Firth of Forth. Due to its rugged setting and extensive Medieval and Georgian architecture it is one of the most dramatic cities in Europe.
Edinburgh is the seat of the Scottish Parliament and was one of the major centres of the Enlightenment gaining the nickname "Athens of the North". The Old Town and New Town districts of Edinburgh are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 
Edinburgh is famous for the annual Edinburgh Festival which includes the Edinburgh Fringe,  the Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Other notable events include the New Year Hogmanay street party, Burns Night and St. Andrew's Day.
The city is one of Europe's major tourist destinations and is the second most visited tourist destination in the United Kingdom after London.
