Karoly Kiss's poplar tree - Cuzăplac, Salaj County
One of the most beautiful tourist attractions from Salaj county and in the same too little knowned is the “Karoly Kiss's poplar tree”. The Poplar tree belongs to the white poplar species (populus alba) and is probably the oldest tree from the Almas Valley. Locals say it would have over 350-400 years. Because the tree is too little is known, some of it is down due to a fire caused by some shepherds unaware of the value of such a secular tree. “Karoly Kiss's poplar tree” is right at the edge of the Roman road or "Traian's Road" as the locals call it, the road that connects the Optatiana - Porolissum Roman camp and Napoca. If you are near the Cuzăplac village, do not miss this goal, you will be amazed by the grandeur of this centuries-old tree.

BEST sandwich I have ever had. The menu is numbered up to about 40, but look no further than No. 9 - it will blow your mind. Friendly staff, but a very small restaurant with little seating area. 'Not a great place, but a great sandwich'

A lovely place to go and have a wander around. It has these beautiful bending streets that run down to it just off the royal mile. Have a beer in the numerous pubs, do a bit of shopping or even grab a bite to eat.
The best views of Edinburgh and a 'must do' in my opinion. A slight challenge, may take about an hour to get up but the juice is worth the squeeze! Try pick a nice day, and wear sturdy shoes. If you have time you should try go to The Sheeps Heid on the way down (the oldest pub in Edinburgh and very accessible if you're over that part of town).
Situated right in the centre of the city, Calton Hill is unmistakable with its Athenian acropolis poking above the skyline. The acropolis is actually an unfinished monument - originally called the "Scottish National Monument". Initiated a year after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo, it was meant to be a replica of the Parthenon in Athens, as a memorial to those who had died in the Napoleonic Wars. However, it was never finished because funds ran dry and it therefore became known as "Edinburgh's shame". Now, ironically, it has become a popular landmark and the home to a lovely afternoon stroll. If you feel Arthur's Seat is a little beyond you, then the 10 minute walk up to this cultural hub is just what you need. Beautiful views of Princes Street, Arthur's Seat and the Castle.
Another favourite restaurant of mine situated in the heart of Old Town. Absolutely delicious Thai food for an incredible price; at lunchtime prices range from £5.90 to about £8 and it is all fantastic. Prices go up at supper time but it is still incredibly good value. The Pad-See-Ew with beef, the Khao Mung Gai Tod or the green/red Thai curry would be my recommendations! Be prepared for a queue, it's very popular. It is the partner of another restaurant called The Outsider just around the corner, which is also delicious but serves more traditional food.
Hidden away in the ancient Edinburgh Vaults, The Caves once served as a watering hole for the local reprobates as well as a dumping ground for the bloodless victims of notorious serial killers Burke and Hare. Rediscovered two centuries later, The Caves has transformed Edinburgh's music scene, becoming one of the city's most iconic venues. You'll have to look online to see who's playing but they often host bands or DJs (as well as weddings and other private events). It is definitely worth a visit if you are looking to see what Edinburgh has to offer in terms of nightlife.
Delightful little French restaurant in the heart of New Town. Extremely good lunchtime deals but would recommend going in the evening as the atmosphere is much better. Delicious French food at a very decent price. Couldn't recommend it more.
Pear Tree House
If you're looking for a place to sit and have a beer on a hot summers day (of which there aren't many!)then look no further. Delicious beers and a cracking garden to drink them in.
A very scottish pub hidden away right up the top of Northumberlannd Place, good music, nice atmosphere and a great terrace. Potentially a little overpriced but if it's a small traditional Sottish pub you're after then you've come to the right place.
