Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, of Victorian and industrial origin. It is very proud of its “worker” and entrepreneurial image and today it is the paradise of shopping and nightlife, in eternal rivalry with Edinburgh, which maintains its status as capital despite being much smaller. The history of Glasgow and its architectural style are linked to the Victorian era trade, with the immense fortunes accumulated by tobacco lords with overseas countries. After a long period of bad reputation and social degradation, in recent decades the city has found its redemption thanks to a massive urban redevelopment policy and the revival of cultural activities related to The Lighthouse, the Scottish center of architecture, design and urban planning and the growth and development of the university center. In the elegant architectural setting of the historic center, some of the most beautiful streets in the United Kingdom are worth mentioning, so full of shops that shopping is one of the favorite activities to get to know the city.
