Old and New Town - Main Squares

Edinburgh City Center -- The UNESCO World Heritage Site at the heart of the city combines the medieval Old Town, the Georgian New Town and award winning modern architecture. Central Edinburgh offers mysterious winding streets, elegant terraces and an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants.

Central Edinburgh has two distinct parts, divided by Princes Street. Old Town and New Town.

The Old Town represents the total extent of the twin burghs of Edinburgh and Canongate for the first 650 years of their existence, and its general appearance and character remain indubitably medieval with its tortuous alleys and tightly packed closes.

The majority of the city's most famous tourist sights and landmarks are found in the Old Town. Main sights include Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, St. Giles Cathedral and the Law Courts, the Royal Museum of Scotland, Surgeons Hall and McEwan Hall.

To the north of Princes Street lies the New Town of Edinburgh. The New town itself is over 200 years old, and stands in total contrast to the Old Town. The layout is symmetrical, the streets are broad and straight, and most of the buildings are Neoclassical in design. Today the New Town is the bustling hub of the city's professional, commercial and business life, dominated by shops, banks and offices.
