Glasgow, Scotland

Glasgow Scotland

Glasgow is the largest city in the country of Scotland that’s rich in arts and culture. June to August is the best time to visit because of its up to 17-hours daylight. Since the day is longer, you’ll have more time exploring the city, especially doing outdoor activities. New Year may attract more tourists since it’s a holiday season, but if you want to experience the Burns and Hogmanay Nights festivals, January is the month to go to. March to May on the other hand is the time when the city is filled with gorgeous flowers. You’ll see structures that boast of gorgeous Edwardian and Victorian architecture. Some of these buildings include the Glasgow Cathedral and The City Chambers. There are also various museums and art galleries to check out such as Glasgow Science Centre that has science exhibits for children, People’s Palace and Winter Gardens where you can learn more about the city’s history and its people, and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which is considered as its grandest museum.


It’s part of Denmark, but it has been granted self-governance since 1979. It may not be the most affordable place to visit, but if you have the cash to spend, it’s all worth it. This is one of the places with the most natural beauty. Explore its vast wilderness by foot or using a dogsled or ski. You may also go for a boat ride or a helicopter ride and feast your eyes with the glaciers and gorgeous mountains. It’s also one of the places where you can witness the magical Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
