Glasgow, nestled on the River Clyde, has been a very important trading port for hundreds of years. In the 18th century, the city quickly became a star outpost for the British crown, and at one time Glasgow was the world`s largest seaport. Goods, ideas, and even people from far and wide have shaped the city`s unique culture over the centuries; today, Glasgow has the largest foreign-born population of any city in Scotland. The city can also boast a large commercial footprint, as the residents of Glasgow spend the most in their High Streets out of every other city in Great Britain -- save for London.
Glasgow was selected as the European City of Culture in 1990 and was also the host of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Both of those distinctions have brought a lot of positive economic impact to this area, which was once on the decline due to Glasgow`s reliance on industry jobs. Now, urban renewal initiatives are brightening multiple areas of town, crime is at an all-time low, and Glaswegians are more enthusiastic than ever to welcome you to their beloved city.
