Mini-Guide To Aberdeen

Another lovely city in the United Kingdom is the city of Aberdeen. It is known as the Silver City or the Granite City, because of its granite-like architecture. The city is a sight to behold for tourists. Aberdeen is situated in the Grampian region, which provides a spectacular backdrop with its green forests along the sea cliffs and its heather covered moors. Aberdeen is a perfect example of a model Scottish town. It is also a city that combines the old and the new. On one side, there is the much-admired Old Aberdeen whilst a very different commercial harbor can be seen in another part of the city. Back in the old days, Aberdeen was an agricultural center. Recently, it has become a major oil production center. In addition, Aberdeen produces around 50 percent of the country's Scotch Whiskey. When it comes to tourism, the city is full of marvels. Among the top attractions of Aberdeen are St. Andrew's Cathedral, the 15th century King's College, Europe's premium indoor garden, Duthie Park, and Aberdeen's Maritime Museum, just to name a few.
