THE OLD TOWN - EDINBURGH - SCOTLAND
The Old Town is the name popularly given to the oldest part of Edinburgh, as it represents the historic core of the city. It’s built along the "Royal Mile" (its main street) which runs on a downwards slope from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace.
A walk across the Old Town affords a glimpse into the city’s past: its narrow alleyways, winding passages, cobbled lanes and abandoned houses, are the source of many a ghostly tale.
I consider Edinburgh as one of the world's most beautiful capitals, and its Old Town as home of the best attractions. The area has preserved much of its medieval structures, and nowadays it’s full of pubs, restaurants, boutique shops and arts venues. Along with the New Town, the Old Town was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
