If you’re tired of walking around in the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland you might consider a break in the Princes Street Gardens. They are located underneath Edinburgh Castle and can be found along the Princes Street beginning at the Waverley train station. This area was originally a lake that was continuously contaminated by sewerage from the old city center and was therefore dried-out. The park was then created in 1820.
Today you can find greenfields and benches here to sit down and also trees and flowers. Highlights are the flower clock and the nice Ross fountain – it was created in 1860 in France and then shipped in parts to Edinburgh in 1869. You can easily find the park when looking out for the huge Scott Monument attached to it. Close-by is also the National Gallery of Scotland.
