Edinburgh is a city of mystery. I didn't think that every day I could discover something new here. There are so many beautiful and fascinating places everywhere around. No wonder, the city is very popular with tourists, wondering around the main sites: the Old Town, the Arthur's Seat, the Edinburgh Castle, the Holyrood Park and the Royal Mile. And, I am sure, everyone who have been in Edinburgh, has probably visited those places. But there is so much more to the city than these above and Edinburgh has so much more to offer.
Today, I would like to focus on those ‘less’ popular sites of the city that I personally really like. For instance, Dean Village. Path along the Water of Leith river is almost 20 km long and it is perfect for a Saturday walk or a bike ride. It was definitely built so to look good in pictures. Everywhere you go, you can see beautiful sceneries and buildings.

A bit of fun facts, Dean Village built more than 800 years ago. It was the milling village which supplied Edinburgh with flour and bread. Now, this is one of the most expensive areas to live in in Edinburgh. I went for a tour of the Dean Village few weeks ago and I was lucky with the weather, with February’s sun out and warm temperatures it was a pleasure to have my look around. But I cannot wait to the spring even more, it will probably be even more beautiful then.
