A city of rich culture and many arts events

Edinburgh is not the largest city in Scotland, with just over half a million inhabitants. But it is the site of many of Edinburgh's most important and interesting institutions, and there are many things to do during your stay. It houses the National Museum of Scotland, which features artefacts of natural history as well as Scottish history and archaeology. There is also the National Library of Scotland and Scotland's National Gallery to visit.
There is a much wider variety of museums and activities, too. For example, the National War Museum looks at military history, the Museum of Edinburgh features Scottish pottery and also displays the original National Covenant, signed by Scotland's Presbyterian leadership in 1638. The Museum of Childhood features toys and games from the past. For art galleries, those with more modern taste can visit the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, or if you prefer portraits and photography there is the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. There are also regular exhibitions in Market Street. The Usher Hall features classical music performances while more modern styles feature at venues such as the Corn Exchange, the Liquid Rooms and Murrayfield. Folk music, especially Scottish folk music, plays at Sandy Bell's in Forrest Road and Whistlebinkies in Niddry Street.
The city is dominated by the silhouette of Edinburgh Castle. Also worth visiting is Holyrood Castle, which is the home of the Queen of England when she is in Scotland. Edinburgh has a strong financial industry, and is headquarters for companies such as Standard Life, the Royal Bank of Scotland and Scottish Widows.
The second most popular tourist attraction in Edinburgh is the Zoo, which is usually the home of some Panda bears.
Shopping in Edinburgh is focused on the lengthy Princes Street, though they are mainly mass-market shops. Most people travel around Edinburgh by bus, and there is also a tram system.
Edinburgh is the site of the famous Edinburgh Festival in the summer, and August's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which showcases arts and comedy, is particularly popular. Other annual events feature classical music, theatre, film and literature, and other forms of art. Other popular times to visit the city are New Year's Eve, when the Hogmanay celebrations in Princes Street attract thousands.
