Welcome to our blog where we will keep you updated what is going on in this gorgeous city.

You will see Edinburgh is never a boring city and always worth to pay a visit.

Despite we are nearly end of this month already (time is flying) there is still something on our plate to offer.


  • Africa in Motion Film Festival 2013

 24th of October to the 3rd of November: they have brought to Scotland a fantastic showcase of awe-inspiring films from across the African continent. They take you on a cinematic journey to discover how Africans see themselves in the world we all share. Following the spirit of Africa you will travel across forgotten Kingdoms, follow Islamic pilgrimages, see the life-changing of revolutions and reimagine notions of what it means to be African in this modern world.

It sounds very exciting!

The festival is taking place at the Filmhouse (88 Lothian Road, Edinburgh)

  • Leonardo Da Vinci: Mechanics of Man

Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyrood House

 2nd of August to the 10th of November: so far one of the most popular exhibition in Edinburgh - where you can find out that the great artist of the Renaissance, Leonardo Da Vinci was also a pioneer in the understanding of human anatomy. He had his ground-breaking work been published, it would have transformed European knowledge of the subject.

This exhibition displays thirty sheets of Leonardo Da Vinci's anatomical studies, which date from the winter of 1510-11 when he carried out some 20 autopsies at the University of Pavia in collaboration with the professor of anatomy, Marcantonio della Totte and uses the latest medical technology including CT and MRI scans, computer simulations and 3D film of the body to explore the modern relevance of his anatomical research.
