    Glasgow

    About

    Overview

    It is a port city located on the River Clyde in the west of Scotland’s Lowlands. The area of the city is about 175 km2 having a population of 600,309 people depending upon 2020 statistics.

    The population of the city is of different origins which are: White Scotland, Asian Scotland, Black Scotland, Christian Scotland and Muslim Scotland as they are written in order according to their density.

    Glasgow had become a city by the 12th century upon a royal Charter. “The cathedral was the seat of the Bishops and after 1472 the Archbishops of Glasgow”.

    The Christian missionary Saint Mungo was the founder of the region as Glasgow in the 6th century. He constructed a church on the Molendinar Burn, where Glasgow Cathedral is in its place now, and with the course of time, Glasgow became a religious hub.

    The name Glasgow is thought to be derived from the Brythonic Celtic “Cleschi” which means “Dear Green Place”. The city is set on the River Clyde on its spacious valley floor. The River Clyde surrounds the city from east to west; the marvelous views of hills in the north, in the north-west and south offer interesting natural landscapes.

    Glasgow is a good place for students to live and study, as it is very safe. The threats in the city are just trivial thefts, and a potential risk of a tourist assault.
