Travel Tips to Glasgow (GLA)
Glasgow – an intriguing Scottish attraction
Situated by the River Clyde in southwest Scotland, Glasgow is the third largest city in the United Kingdom. This vibrant city captivates tourists all over the world due to its vast number of unique landmarks. A flight to Glasgow with FlyDoha ensures that you don’t miss out on this amazing experience.
Treasures found in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
The Kelvingrove Art Gallery is the largest of its kind in Glasgow. It is located on Argyle Street, which is south of the bend of the River Kelvin - a tributary of the Clyde. The museum and art gallery lies directly next to Kelvingrove Park, near the University of Glasgow. An interesting feature is its main entrance which is located at the back of the park. This allows most visitors to enter from Argyle Street. Within the walls of the museum lies one of the world's most significant collections of weapons and armaments. It also features the painting ‘Christ of Saint John of the Cross’ by the famous artist Salvador Dali. The high halls decorated with red sandstone and chandeliers are enticing and beautiful to tourists worldwide.
Explore the secrets of Necropolis in Glasgow
Enclosed by Wishart and Firpark Streets is the world-famous Victorian cemetery, Necropolis. The park-like cemetery is home to some 50,000 tombs of the wealthiest people in society’s history. In the middle of the cemetery is the John Knox monument standing on a 17.7m high column. Most notable are the large tombstones of the famous architects Alexander Greek Thomson, David Hamilton and John Bryce. The design of the Glasgow Necropolis is inspired by the Parisian Père Lachaise Cemetery and thus became known as a garden cemetery.
The Glasgow Science Centre
Located on the south bank of the River Clyde is an especially popular tourist attraction - the Glasgow Science Centre. It consists of three main buildings: The Science Mall, Glasgow Tower and the IMAX Cinema. A recognizable feature, even from a distance, is the futuristic design of the buildings with their titanium cladding – which is comically referred to as an “armadillo” due to its architectural shape. The Science Mall contains various science centres where visitors can even engage in experiments. Popular among the centres is the planetarium, where the starry sky is beautifully represented on a comprehensive dome 15 metres in diameter. Standing at 127m high is the Glasgow Tower, which is the tallest free-rotating tower in the world. It rests on a special thrust bearing and is supported by concentric rings and shock absorbers. For film lovers, there is even an IMAX theatre at the complex. If you want to experience the futuristic side of Scotland's largest city, then book your flights to Glasgow with FlyDoha now.
