Edinburgh

Here we are in the National Museum of Scotland.
Firstly, it's free, which really surprises and pleases. Secondly, there are exhibits for any taste.
From pretty unusual... Yes, because it's also the national pride.

Do you remember poor Dolly the sheep?

To classical ones...

You can not only admire the national pride but also try it yourself.
Although, only if you are not older than 5 :)

There are many interesting telephones because Alexander Graham Bell was born in Edinburgh.
There are also a lot of interesting exhibits in the "ancient" part of the museum.
Look, for example, at this "portable" carriage.
What do you think, who traveled in such vehicles?
The answer is - the doctors of that time.
It was actually the "ambulance" :)

And there are a lot of other different exhibits.
Here's furniture...

There's also the children's one...

This storage chest, looking pretty ordinary, had a locking mechanism more reliable than modern safes do...

That's all about the museum.
And now, let's take a walk around Edinburgh.

This is a beautiful park right in the heart of the city.

It is a 

monument to Walter Scott

.
It's even possible to climb there - but we were too lazy...
