Glasgow is Scotland's largest city, a cosmopolitan and modern metropolis with an ornate historical facade. It's an architecture buff's dream, with an array of preserved Victorian and Edwardian buildings to marvel at. Chief among these is the grandiose City Chambers, constructed in the late 19th century in the theatrical Beaux-Arts style.

It certainly serves as a dramatic counterpoint to recent additions to the skyline like the space-age SEC Armadillo auditorium. Once the sun goes down, Glasgow really heats up, with bustling bars and clubs catering to everyone from art school hipsters to real ale connoisseurs.
