Scotland's capital city continues to enjoy economic success while many other UK cities struggle. It's helped make it the second biggest financial centre outside London and an international player in the world of banking and insurance. But it's not all anonymous office blocks filled with accountants. The historic city is a World Heritage site (alongside the likes of the Great Wall of China and the pyramids at Giza) attracting over a million tourists a year. And its rich culture celebrated through numerous festivals give the city a brand other cities can only dream about. Edinburgh also has an international reputation as a seat of learning with four universities creating and attracting many new cutting-edge businesses.
