Arthur's Seat is a natural inner city escape. It is an extinct volcano and has been called by this name since the 15th century. Walking though the valleys in and around Arthur's Seat you can easily forget that you're in the city centre.
Arthur’s Seat is the highest of a group of hills, formed from the remains of a volcano. The summit is 251 metres high and surprisingly rocky and wild for a hill in the centre of a major city. Although it is popular, it still feels like a real get-away-from-it-all place. No visit to Edinburgh is complete without a trip to Arthur’s Seat. There are many different routes through Holyrood Park suitable for everyone. Whether you spend half a day hiking and enjoying the nature or driving around for 15 minutes, you’ll get fantastic views and a sense of escape from the city streets.
The best time to hike to Arthur’s Seat is during sunrise or sunset, which offers the best views. It is always very windy up there due to the Scottish weather and its altitude. The park can be visited throughout the year, and it is difficult to get lost. Although there are steep slopes and slippery rock, it’s pretty safe as long as you don’t go beyond your limits. However, it could be dangerous to hike during winter season due to the heavy snowfall in recent years.
Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. 1.6 million people live there when 20 years ago there were only 700,000; that is to say, the incredibly quick growth and the stunning density in this city shows today.
