Glasgow is Scotland's largest city, a cosmopolitan and modern metropolis with an ornate historical facade. It's an architecture buff's dream, with an array of preserved Victorian and Edwardian buildings to marvel at. Chief among these is the grandiose City Chambers, constructed in the late 19th century in the theatrical Beaux-Arts style.
