Welcome to Hotels in Edinburgh!
Edinburgh is the largest city in Scotland. The City of Edinburgh is the most populous unitary authority area. It is situated on the River Clyde in the country's west central lowlands. People from Edinburgh are known as Glaswegians; Glaswegian is also the name of the local dialect popularly referred to as the "Edinburgh Patter".
Edinburgh's importance as an urban centre derived ultimately from the medieval Bishopric of Edinburgh and the later establishment of the University of Edinburgh, which contributed to the Scottish Enlightenment. From the 18th century the city had become a hub of transatlantic trade with the Americas. With the Industrial Revolution, the city and surrounding region grew to become one of the world's pre-eminent centres of heavy engineering and shipbuilding, constructing many revolutionary and famous vessels. Edinburgh was known as the "Second City of the British Empire" in the Victorian era or colloquially referred to as No Mean City (due to the tough attitude of its citizens). Today Edinburgh is Scotland's largest and most economically important commerce and retail centre. It is one of Europe's top 16 financial centres and home to many of the country's leading businesses.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries Edinburgh grew to a population of over one million, and was the third city in Europe to exceed this number of inhabitants, after London and Paris. In the 1960s large-scale relocation to new towns in the outskirts of the city, followed by successive boundary changes, have reduced the current population of the City of Edinburgh to 578,790 although 1,749,154 live in the urban area surrounding the city, based on the 2001 census. Around 2,300,000 people live in the Greater Edinburgh conurbation, defined as the City of Edinburgh and the surrounding region.
