Edinburgh is a lively, vibrant city that is split into the Old Town and the New Town, each with a distinct feel. This city has been the capital of Scotland since the 1400s and is an important city in the UK today.

The Old Town is known for its beautiful ancient buildings and cobbled streets with lots of history, while the New Town is known for its neoclassical elegance and its more modern history.

The New Town actually started being built in the mid-1700s, so it is not actually very modern by most standards. The city is spread out over rocky hills by the sea, with much to explore on these ancient cobblestoned streets.
