The combination of tourism and politics

Every year, this project welcomes a large number of domestic and foreign tourists to visit. The palace tour is quite diverse, from meeting rooms, gathering laws and policies to art exhibitions.
Favorite food is not Scottish food
Haggis (heart, liver, lung, kidney, lamb fat cooked with onion, oatmeal) is a famous specialty of Scotland. However, indigenous people do not like these dishes.
Multicultural city – Glasgow is home to thousands of Asians, Italians and Eastern Europeans settling in the last century. South Asian cuisine brings here very characteristic curry and has become one of the Scottish favorite food.
In Glasgow, visitors can find the best curry restaurants in the country. For example, Mister Singh, which serves Indian and Scottish dishes such as haggis and potato curry.
Favorite drink is Irn Bru
Whiskey is a famous drink, most exported in Scotland. There are wine factories located throughout the islands, plateaus and lowlands. Guests are invited to many sightseeing tours, learn and enjoy free wine.
However, this is not a favorite drink of indigenous people. The majority of Scottish people prefer Irn Bru – a carbonated drink from Barrs, which helps reduce fatigue symptoms for people who drink alcoholic beverages.
