Glasgow is Scotland largest city with its reputation as the second city of the Empire secured
through its massive shipbuilding and engineering industries during the Victorian era. Although shipbuilding
is now mostly a memory, Glasgow has re-invented itself as a vibrant modern city with new world-class attractions and is
one of the cultural capitals of Europe. It is a fascinating mixture of Victorian buildings and modern glass and
steel constructions with a lively spirit second to none. The heart of the city is the impressive George Square with
the City Chambers, shown right, as its landmark building.
