University of Edinburgh

Location: 

The gorgeous capital city of Scotland offers breathtaking views, hundreds of years of history, and a great nightlife. Edinburgh is one of the most architecturally beautiful cities in Europe, but you'll find much more than just lovingly preserved buildings. The city has the advantage of a compact, convenient layout and warm, welcoming people, yet with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. The Scottish Parliament opened in 1998, making the city once again the center of Scotland’s political life.

The city also offers plenty of pubs, trendy cafes, vegetarian restaurants, and small boutiques, as well as great clubs. Edinburgh is the U.K.'s festival city and home to the famous International Festival every August. The city hosts other film, music, and art festivals in the spring and summer as well.
