Edinburgh

愛丁堡 北國的雅典

若你喜歡歐洲風典雅四方的建築,從中世紀傳留下來一級一級的石板道,和滲出陣陣歷史的城堡橋樑,那愛丁堡-甚至先於倫敦-就是你必需到的地方。

Searching for Athens of the North – Edinburgh Vista

Edinburgh, the capital and by a country mile the city that I know best in Scotland, having visited a few summers ago. Weeks and years may have passed by, yet I can still picture with vividity these lovely afternoons, basking in the unseasonable Northern warmth, when I traced my steps from the cobbled medieval streets to the orderly boulevards decorated in Georgian grandeur. People have christened Edinburgh as 'Athens of the North': with its splendid architecture, reputation for academia and enlightenment, AND that clear sky of ocean blue that fails to greet me, who is it to object?
