cover-edinburgh-up-closeWelcome to Edinburgh! A silhouette of pointed gothic buildings, smoky dark facades and a confusing labyrinth of narrow alleys: This is Edinburgh from the distance. Come closer and explore the colourful faces of a town that will cast a spell over and quicker than you can say “deep fried mard bar”.

Before you start planning your holiday it is good to know a few things about Edinburgh and its people.
Emergency numbers: Police, Ambulance and Fire Brigade: 999
Scotland/Britain country code: 0044
Currency: Pound Sterling (£)
Time zone: UTC (MEZ -1 hour)

Money: Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere, bars and restaurants prefer cash though. You can only use any card to withdraw money at cash points.
Legal matters: Smoking in public areas such as pubs and restaurants is forbidden in the whole of the UK and Ireland, so you need to go outside to have a puf. You will be requested to show your ID when you visit a pub, since drinking alcohol under 18 is illegal. People aged under 18 are permitted entrance ater 8pm.

Good shoes are essential because it is a big and old city and the streets are oten steep and uneven. Sometimes they are connected by stairs. An umbrella or a raincoat are necessary, because the weather changes very fast and it rains oten.
Remember to look both ways before crossing the street, the people in the vehicles are driving on the let and often very fast.
Earplugs are favourable if you sleep lightly, because you will be in a city which never sleeps, so there is noise all day long and especially the sirens of the ambulance and police are very loud.
No alcohol is allowed on streets ater 10pm but don’t worry the bartender will remind you if you are sitting outside.
For tipping 10 percent is normal, but it is not obligatory to give tips.
Don’t be afraid of asking people if you need help because the Scottish are very friendly and will help you as well as they can.
