Discover the neighborhoods of Aberdeen
One of the largest cities in Scotland, Aberdeen is a sprawling city with stunning architecture and an attractive coastline, the perfect destination for vacationers who prefer a historical city to that of a party island. The city is served by Aberdeen International Airport, which hosts flights from all major European and UK cities, and is located just under seven miles outside of the city.
Aberdeen is famous for impressive architecture, and most of the most impressive buildings are concentrated around Union Street and the surrounding area. Here, visitors can walk around and admire stunning buildings such as the Town House and the Salvation Army Citadel, among many others.
On the other side, the Aberdeen Harbor is more than just where one can catch a boat or ferry for a short cruise around the area. This is also where many beautiful harbor-side restaurants and cafes are located, as well as the romantic stretch of Aberdeen Beach. The North Sea is often cold, so this beach is not where people go to sunbathe. Instead, activities like windsurfing are very popular pastimes, and an evening walk along the coastline is one of the most relaxing activities to be had in Aberdeen.
