    Overview of Aberdeen
    As Europe’s offshore capital, the city of Aberdeen may be known as the Granite City and the oil capital of Europe, but there is so much more to it than that. With medieval castles surrounding the outskirts and the heart of the city boasting a bustling nightlife, you never know what amazing thing you will discover next. Apart from this, the city is surrounded by dramatic surroundings steeped in heritage dating back centuries. The city has a diverse population that keeps the bar and club scene as well as the fine dining setting going throughout the night.

    The Granite City, Aberdeen
    Also known as the Silver City, Aberdeen gets its nickname from the fact that the city is made up of granite architecture that glistens in the sunlight, making it truly interesting and unique. The city also shipped local granite to different parts of the UK and Europe which was then
    used for construction. It was during the late 18th and then 19th century, when these buildings were built thus creating the Granite City at present. Aberdeen has grown to accommodate the extra income and an influx of businesses and workers, making it the city it is today.
