Here you can find a little City Guide to Glasgow and its beautiful places. The guide was created by apprentices, who had lived in Glasgow and who found their favourite places themselves. These places they want to share with you. The Guide should make you curious about Glasgow and it should help you in your first days. We hope you will enjoy it.

If you’ve been there once, you will never go back to your home town!
