  • Inside maps and graphics are of as the city is designed and as it was growing as well as the history of as it was populated. It is small your travel is carried out without difficulty and narrow is preferable to visit him without so many tourists

  • Interesting to know more about the city. Show us articles of the time, but what I liked most was the video that explains how this was formed.

  • Whatever your interests are, you will definitely enjoy visiting the Museum of Edinburgh. It is a beautiful mix between National History Museum and the Science Museum in London.
