Edinburgh is known as the Athens of the North, and it is one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Its architecture reflects its historical importance as Scotland's capital. Edinburgh's landmarks are known throughout the world, from the magnificent Castle dominating the city skyline, to the elegance of the Georgian New Town, and the splendour of its Victorian heritage.

But there is much more to Edinburgh than its visual appeal. The city is home to over 400,000 people, and is a cosmopolitan centre for Scotland's cultural, commercial and political life in the 21st century. Europe's fastest growing financial centre, Edinburgh is a vibrant modern working city, but at the same time it is firmly grounded in tradition. Past and present live side by side in an ideal location for work, leisure and study.

It is home to the world's greatest arts festival, which ensures that once a year Edinburgh becomes the world's cultural capital. The Festival attracts more than a million visitors each year, who come to experience everything from the weird and wonderful Fringe to the colour and tradition of the Military Tattoo, which transforms the Castle into a theatrical backdrop for a stunning visual show.

The 2004 festival will end 4 September, a fantastic opportunity for a pre-congress visit!

The University of Edinburgh is one of the city's most important institutions. From the architectural landmark of Old College, to the modern developments at The Kings Buildings, the University's blend of tradition and innovation reflects the city itself. Since its foundation in 1583, the University of Edinburgh has developed a worldwide reputation.
