28th Euro Dentistry Congress Meeting & Hospitality
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland which is in the central region of the country has a population of approximately 450,000. The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh were listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1995. In 2004, Edinburgh became the first member of the UNESCO Creative Cities initiative when it was designated a City of Literature. In a 2009 poll by YouGov, Edinburgh was voted the most desirable city to live in the UK. For centuries, these early inhabitants eked out a living. The town did not really begin to grow until the twelfth century when David I built what would later become Edinburgh Castle which was actually built with help of an extinct volcano. Over time, a town slowly grew up around these two landmarks. The rest of the town’s inhabitants were likely farmers, with perhaps a scattering of tradesmen. Edinburgh Castle is the most recognizable landmark in the city, it sits atop a volcanic peak and dominates the city skyline. Near Edinburgh Castle on the Royal Mile is the Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. This attraction has two main features – first, it has several floors featuring optical illusions, light tricks, old-fashioned games, and magic displays which we had a lot of fun playing with. To add more Edinburgh was the first city in the world to have its own fire service for the safety of people.
