Best things to see and do in Glasgow
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, being the economic, social and political axis of the region. Framed within the United Kingdom, it is a destination that has a small Old Town (historical center) compared to other cities of the same nature. The Georgian-style houses placed one behind the other stand out more than any other architectural styles, retaining very few vestiges of their medieval pasts. It may seem that almost every historical trace has been eliminated, but the modernization of the city has been taken place on most of the streets, giving rise to picturesque images decorated by the Clyde River. Despite not having historic buildings that preserve the styles of past centuries, the beauty of this city lies in other strong points, such as the bustling streets, the nightlife as well as in its parks and museums.
