Edinburgh Festivals
There are probably no people who would not like to visit the
Edinburgh Festival. It is so beautiful and interesting that it is worth
mentioning !

was established in the
framework of the post-war
efforts to improve the morale of
the population. And in the first
year, eight theater companies
have gone beyond the official
part of organizing additional
performances have turned the

Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
The grandiose musical-theater festival, which is held in the first three
weeks of August every year since 1950 in the c Edinburgh. Submissions
are participating military bands from around the world, drummers,
singers, acrobats and cheerleaders, all more than a thousand participants.
The Palace of Holyroodhouse is The
Queen's official residence in Scotland.
The Palace is used by Her Majesty during
'Holyrood Week' for official functions and
events, and by members of the Royal
Family at other times of the year.
The State Apartments of the Palace are
open to visitors throughout the year when
not in use for official ceremonies and
As a future builder, I note the remarkable architecture of
Holyroodhouse Palace has the
shape of a square - buildings on the
sides of the square perimeter and
the courtyard in the middle. Just a
square - it would be boring, but two
attached double towers give
Holyrood its unique appearance. It
is worth paying attention to the
gates of the palace. They look more
ancient than the main building.
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
One of the oldest UK Botanic Gardens. The area is 25 hectares. It was
founded in 1670. The garden was founded by two scientists Andrew and
Robert Balforum Sibbaldom. Throughout its history, the botanical garden
changed the location to its present one several times. - on the city moved

The Royal Mile
A series of streets in the center of
Edinburgh is one of the main
attractions of the city. The length of
the Royal Mile is one Scottish mile,
which is longer than the British one
about 200 m (about 1.8 km). It
begins at Edinburgh Castle and
descends down to Holyrood Palace.
Calton Hill
Calton Hill is one of the hills in the heart of Edinburgh. This is
a great viewing platform, which offers wonderful perspective
of the city. Officially, the hill was joined to the city of
Edinburgh in 1859. Once there was a prison and a place of
execution, and then the building of the Scottish Government –
St Andrews House was erected.
The University of Edinburgh

The virtual excursion is over and it is of great help to
improve my English. It draws my attention to the
history, culture and education. But most of all I was
impressed by enigmatic architecture of the city. After
looking at the amazing buildings and facilities in
Edinburgh, I’m proud of my professional choice. As
a future builder I want to learn to do something similar
