Greenock/Edinburgh

Pažljiv postindustrijski ponovni razvoj

Kada vaš MSC brod pristane u luci Greenock u Škotskoj, od Glasgowa će vas dijeliti samo kratak put. Glasgow je rastući postindustrijski velegrad smješten na obalama rijeke Clyde.


 
Ovo vedro odredište brodova nudi odlične barove, klubove i restorane. Njegovi muzeji i galerije su među najboljima u Britaniji, a impresivna arhitektura grada odražava bogatstvo koje je postigao tijekom svog vrhunca u 18. i 19. stoljeću. Smješten na obalama moćne rijeke Clyde, Glasgow, drugi najveći grad Škotske, tradicionalno nije uživao najbolji ugled. Međutim, panorama grada je dotjerana, a brojni posjetitelji oduševljeni su arhitekturom grada - od dugih nizova pješčenjačkih platoa do fantastičnih tornjeva muzeja Kelvingrove

Glasgow ima neke od najbolje financiranih i najmaštovitijih muzeja i galerija u Britaniji - među njima je staklena vitrina kolekcije Burrell i sjajna umjetnička galerija i muzej Kelvingrove - a ulaz u gotovo sve muzeje i galerije je besplatan. Arhitektura Glasgowa je među najupečatljivijim arhitekturama Ujedinjenog Kraljevstva, od obnovljenih skladišta trgovačkog grada iz 18. stoljeća do ogromnih viktorijanskih palača na trgu George Square


Najposebniji od svega je rad lokalnog genijalca Charlesa Rennia Mackintosha. Njegov elegantni secesijski dizajn pojavljuje se posvuda po gradu, a svoj je vrhunac dosegao u zapanjujućoj Umjetničkoj školi (School of Art). Na krstarenju po Sjevernoj Europi s MSC-om imate i mogućnost odlaska na izlet u Stirling. Opkoračivši rijeku Forth nekoliko milja uzvodno od ušća Kincardinea, pojavljuje se Stirling koji na prvi pogled izgleda poput manje verzije Edinburgha.

Ovo je vrlo primamljivo mjesto s dvorcem na vrhu litice, strmim, kamenim ulicama i miješanom zajednicom lokalnog stanovništva, studenata i turista. Stirling je bio poprište nekih od najznačajnijih događaja u rađanju škotskog naroda, a tim se zbivanjima odaje počast uzvišenim spomenikom Wallace koji je smješten visoko na Abbey Craigu na sjeveroistoku.

    This tour is the perfect opportunity to explore Glasgow at your own pace and visit only those places you really want to see. On leaving Greenock in a modern coach, a scenic 1-hour drive will take you to Glasgow through Scotland's appealing countryside. After a brief unguided orientation tour of the city, passing the lovely district of Kelvingrove and Saint Mungo's Cathedral on the way, you can enjoy plenty of free time to do as you please. Once considered to be the "Second City of the British Empire”, modern-day Glasgow is a vibrant multi-cultural locale with lots to see and discover. Places of interest while in Glasgow include the City Chambers, an impressive late 19th-century building constructed in Italian Renaissance style, the lovingly restored Willow Tea Rooms, which were originally designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1904, as well as the ultra-modern Tradeston Pedestrian Bridge, which is also called the "Squiggly Bridge” - no prizes for guessing why. But whatever you choose to do while in Glasgow, the friendly vibe of this Scottish city is sure to work its magic on you. Your tour ends with your return trip to Greenock by coach.

    After boarding a coach at the pier, you will first travel northeast through the scenic countryside en route to Stirling, passing through Dumbarton and the pretty villages of Drymen, Buchlyvie and Arnprior on the way. Among Stirling's main attractions are Wallace Monument, built on top of the Abbey Craig hill in honour of the 13th-century Scottish hero, Sir William Wallace, as well as the magnificent Stirling Castle, the destination of this tour. Thanks to its favourable position in the middle of Scotland, Stirling was of huge strategic importance in the past. You will have a chance to visit and explore the historic castle and its incredible architecture as well as the co-located 16th-century Renaissance-style Royal Palace, which has now been returned to its former glory. The furniture and décor in the royal apartments will give you an idea of the Palace's former splendour. The whole experience is richly brought to life by all sorts of "great lords and ladies” and their "servants” who roam the grounds and will happily explain the details of daily castle life. Your visit will conclude with a stop at the tapestry studio to see world-class weavers restoring one of the world's finest surviving sets of medieval tapestries. After savouring the fabulous views of the Highlands and Lowlands from the castle's esplanade and taking some photos, your 1.5-hour return trip to Greenock will begin with more opportunities to enjoy the spectacular Scottish scenery. Please note : limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only. This tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair.

    Any visit to Scotland should include some time spent enjoying its incredible scenery, which this tour of mountains and lochs gives you a chance to do from the comfort of a modern coach. Leaving the port, you will first travel eastwards to cross the River Clyde and then make your way up to Loch Lomond, Scotland's largest freshwater lake. Watch out for the quite dramatic change in scenery as you approach the loch. The mountainous backdrop and clear blue of the water serve to epitomise the rugged splendour of this Scottish landscape - and are certainly worth a photo or two. A stop will be made in Luss, a picturesque village that is thought to have taken its name from an adaptation of the French for the heraldic iris, a so-called fleur-de-lis. Evidence suggests that Luss was founded sometime in the 1300s when it is known that a church dedicated to Saint Kessog stood here. You will have some free time to stroll along the banks of the loch or have a drink in a traditional Scottish pub (not included in the price of the tour). Next up is a stop at the "Rest and Be Thankful” viewpoint for another chance to take some photos of the incredible scenery. Your return journey will take you past Loch Fryne, Loch Eck and Holy Loch for more splendid vistas to enjoy. A crossing on the car ferry from Hunter's Quay to McInroy's Point completes the final leg of your return trip to Greenock pier. Please note : limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only.

    An enjoyable 1-hour coach drive through Scotland's spectacular landscape will first take you from Greenock to Glasgow, which was widely known as the "Second City of the British Empire” for much of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Nowadays, Glasgow is a vibrant multi-cultural locale and one of Europe's top financial centres. Your city tour begins at the heart of Glasgow in George Square, the site of various statues, before continuing on for an external viewing of the impressive Gothic-style St. Mungo's Cathedral, which is said to have been built on the spot where Saint Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow, once built a church. A stop will be made in the area known as Townhead for a short walking tour that will give you an outside look at the medieval Provand's Lordship, Glasgow's oldest building dating back to 1471, and the Museum of Religious Life and Art. En route to the beautiful district known as Kelvingrove, home also of the gorgeous red-brick palace housing the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, you can admire several examples of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's inspired architecture. Continuing with a drive through the city's main park, your tour of Kelvingrove will culminate at the university for an outside viewing of the wonderful historical buildings, which lend this venerable seat of learning a distinctly medieval flavour. Please note : limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only.

Ujedinjeno Kraljevstvo

"Bože čuvaj kraljicu"


Ujedinjeno Kraljevstvo ne čini samo jedna, već čak četiri zemlje - Engleska, Wales, Škotska i Sjeverna Irska. Također se sastoji i od mnoštva kulturnih identiteta: ne dao Bog, na primjer, da Škota ili Velšanina nazovete Englezom.

 
Tijekom vašeg krstarenja Ujedinjenim Kraljevstvom nikako nemojte propustiti jedinstveni doživljaj Londona jer ovaj glavni grad je na "must-see" popisu svih putnika. Brighton i Canterbury nude različite doživljaje - prvi je živopisno turističko mjesto na obali, a drugi jedan od najljepših britanskih srednjovjekovnih gradova. 
 
Na jugozapadu Engleske nalazi se ruralni krajolik Devona, stjenovita obala Cornwalla i povijesno lječilište Bath, a glavne znamenitosti središnje Engleske su sveučilišni gradovi Oxford i Cambridge.
 
Dalje na sjeveru su nekadašnji industrijski gradovi Manchester, Liverpool i Newcastle koji su danas živahna i obnovljena mjesta, kao i York koji je prepun veličanstvenih povijesnih blaga, ali ono što najviše privlači ljude u ovo područje je krajolik, posebice visoravni okruga Lake
 
Do najljepših škotskih jezera (loch), uskih dolina (glen) i vrhova, kao i do nevjerojatnih pejzaža otoka West Coast, lako se može doći iz Glasgowa i Edinburgha koji nudi možda najatraktivniji urbani krajolik Britanije. I na kraju, krstarenje Ujedinjenim Kraljevstvom neće biti potpuno ako se ne zaustavite u Sjevernoj Irskoj gdje se nalazi njezin glavni grad Belfast i spektakularni Prolaz divova (Giant's Causeway).
