The Princess Street Gardens

Updated: May 17, 2020

on what was before a swamp made of the sewage of the Old Town. Within the yards, there are many statues and monuments. The most prominent is the Scott Monument, built in honor of Sir Walter Scott: It was surprising to face the memorial of Wojtek, the bear that was adopted by a Polish unit in WWII, grew up, and became one of the corp. He survived the war, and after being released from the army, he lived in Edinburgh zoo. Fantastic story.

Free Entry.
