Visitors to Edinburgh can take in its stunning scenery, breathtaking architecture and fine food. The city is surrounded by a beautiful coastline and countryside in the nearby Lothians. The city is the world's festival capital, with the Edinburgh Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city sits atop a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags which rise from the flat landscape of the Lothians with the sheltered shoreline of the Firth of Forth to the north. The city skyline is dominated by Edinburgh Castle where, from its ramparts, visitors can gaze down on medieval lanes and elegant terraces that contain over a thousand years of history. On the night of 30 April the Beltane Fire Festival takes place on Calton Hill, involving a procession followed by scenes inspired by pagan old spring fertility celebrations. At the beginning of October each year the Dussehra Hindu Festival is also held on Calton Hill. 'Edinburgh,' said writer Robert Louis Stevenson, 'is what Paris ought to be'.
