Discover Aberdeen
A silver city with golden sands

St. Machar Cathedral, ancient museums, and fishing dinner

Aberdeen

Aberdeen is located in the east of Scotland. The city is the third-largest city in the autonomy, its main seaport, and the industrial fishing center. Unified Aberdeen emerged only at the end of the XIX century when the city of Old Aberdeen and the fishing village of New Aberdeen were united. The town has a long coastline that is covered with sand. Aberdeen is known for producing gray granite here. All significant buildings from the middle of the XVIII century to the second half of the last century were built of it. Mica inclusions in granite give the buildings shine like silver. This is why Aberdeen is called the "Silver City with golden sands." Tourists explore the historic part of the city (the oldest quarters in the area of Castlegate with houses of XIII-XIV centuries), St. Machar Cathedral, the main streets, and squares, and visit several museums.
