The new construction was so beautiful that it was referred to as a masterpiece of city planning and described as “The Scottish Enlightenment in Stone.” Edinburgh residents moved from the cramped medieval Old Town into the beautiful new spacious and stylish homes. To this day the New Town is the largest Georgian city area in the world and it is a shining example of the understated grandeur of this architectural style.
