Glasgow Travel guide
Glasgow : Michelin's recommendations
Scotland’s most populous city, Glasgow flourished in the 19C. In the 1960s it went into decline with the closure of its shipyards, but subsequently diversified into technology industries. Its architecture reflects this history: classic Georgian façades, Victorian baroque palaces, marvels of Modernism and futurist buildings… it is Glasgow’s inhabitants, though, who represent the true manifestation of the city’s spirit, best experienced in its pubs and football stadiums.
