The ancient Scottish city of Edinburgh is well known for its historic architecture and town planning and it has been a World Heritage site since 1995. In 1999, the Edinburgh World Heritage group was created as part of a merger between two existing preservation-minded organizations. Since then, the group has worked to promote the heritage aspects of this city, and their website provides a wealth of information about their activities. First-time visitors should click on the "Multimedia" area to learn about their online exhibitions of photographs and prints of this historic city and also listen in to their podcasts. These podcasts are a real treat, and they include walking tours of the city and information about local landmarks like the Museum of Edinburgh and the Writers' Museum.
